Discussion on: Code quality is overrated

Agree with this, and going thru a similar process for my project too. I know I CAN refactor it much more but for now, more focus on users and sales.

Also, had a similar approach to tests and TDD. At the early stage, the layout, what is displayed on each page, and product features are changing so quickly based on user feedback - that TDD seems like an overkill. Also, most times I didn’t know what the end looked like for me to even do TDD first. It was more a process of discovery as it got built, and then writing out quick tests.

There are no rules. Especially when you are building something quick and getting users are the main priority.
