I needed a term to distinguish test code from the code that we are testing. "Test code" is obvious. What to call the other kind of code? In IT shops, the environment in which applications run is often called production. So I'm choosing to call the code that we are writing, whether to ship in a product or deploy into production, "production code". So, we have test code and we have "production code".
