re: To test or not to test, is that even a question? VIEW POST


Tests are good but it's important to not be religious about them. I stopped telling people to write tests when I saw a codebase with 18k+ "unit" tests and testing infrastructure that required an entire team of engineers to manage. This place was spending more time and effort on tests than actually delivering value to their customers.

So yes, it's important to test but it's also important to balance it with overall business and engineering goals.
