Writing an application is only part of the process; it’s also important to check that all of the code works as it should. You can visually inspect the code, but it’s better to execute it in a variety of situations that may arise in the real world to make sure it behaves properly. This process is called unit testing, because the goal is to test the smallest available units of execution.
