         Cache should be agnostic to model changes.
         Version objects in cache.

+    TDD
+        Goes against prototyping
+
+    Coverage.py - Make a game out of testing

+    Test driven refactoring

+
+    Successful strategies
+        Require unit tests for all code going forward
+        Establish a good foundation to build on
+
+    Every bug is two bugs
+        One in the code that broke and one in the test that failed to catch it
+
+    Tests need data
+        Fixtures
+            user types/permissions, relatively constant stuff
+        Use ObjectCreator
+            frequently changing objects

+
+    Testing tools:
+        Nose
+        Coverage
+        Mock
