Engineering: Do you think unit tests are important‪?‬ Ask an Engineering Manager

    • Technology

The short answer here is of course "yes". The episode elaborates why, when, and for who unit tests have the greatest value, how to overcome reasons not to write tests, and lists arguments for why unit tests are important. 
 
Note: I mis-spoke in the episode - the full term for TDD is, of course, correctly "Test-driven development", not "test-driven design" - although, since one of the main benefits of TDD is its influence on the technical design, that would work, too.
