re: How to convince devs to do more testing VIEW POST


Hi Daniel. Gave you a heart, as it is probably a lonely existence being the judge,jury and executioner.
I think the honest reason why most development teams don't do unit testing, is because it is a big undertaking. Especially in enterprises. Code is simply additions to a platform, and testers, and users will pick up bugs during the SDLC. This sounds lazy - but my roles tends to be more data focused, and when working in development environments (not production...) or greenfield there isn't the data to assert the units.
As terrible as it sounds - you may not know if your applications behaves correctly until it is in Integration. Project teams have two decisions - create their own datasets for testing OR put it in integration and test in there.
I took a look at your sites and will bookmark this. Cheers.
