In ourĀ episode on testing with Noel Rappin, we talk about what it means to test code and how to approach the process. But we wanted to hear your thoughts on testing and if you thought it was worth the time. The responses were mixed. It seemed like most people appreciated the value of testing. It can help you refactor your code more easily later, provide a safety net of source while you build new features, and can serve as documentation for when your code base gets so large that you forget all the awesome stuff it does! But there's definitely a learning curve, and depending on where you are in your code journey, it may be worth your time to focus on other topics before getting to testing. Some even felt that testing and test driven development (TDD) weren't useful in all coding cases. Take a look at our tweets and the wide range of opinions on testing. And let us know what you think!
