"Real Developers Don't Need Unit Tests"

Posted by johnsmart on May 9, 2010 at 8:02 PM PDT

Recently I had the pleasure of giving a talk at the Canberra Java Users Groupon the topic 'Real Developers Don't Need Unit Tests':

"Unit testing, and Test-Driven Development in particular, is a vital but neglected art. Proper TDD don't just test code: your tests are executable requirements that tell the story of your application, clarify your design, document your code and help track your progress. They help you find bugs fast, and fix them with confidence. If Real programmers don't need unit tests, they sure make life easier for the rest of us!"

I've posted the slides online here.
