I won’t agree that “beat-it-in-afterward” is the way the industry ‘does’ software. With growing impact of agile and especially TDD, more and more even low-quality shops do testing along coding.
Where I worked, we either got TDD or (for waterwall) V-model. In both cases, quality is recent years got really important. You won’t get your app on iPhone market place if it doesn’t meet certain criteria etc
Please re-consider and please don’t scare new comers to the industry ;-)
