Enabling code coverage

Measuring the code coverage of our tests gives us a feeling of completeness about our test suite. While following the TDD workflow, as we don't write any code without a failing test, the code coverage of our project should be very high. We don't expect it to be 100%, meaning that all the code paths are executed in the tests because the static analyzer forces us to write code that we don't expect to be executed. For example, in the code we wrote, we often used guard to make sure that the value we wanted to access was not nil. We could have written tests for a case where the value was nil.
