I’ve grown to appreciate the value that testing adds to software development. In my opinion many developers spend far too much time focusing on the red herring of code coverage or writing tests just to check them off, rather than the real benefits they provide when you take a more Test-Driven Development (TDD) approach. Although I’ll be the first to admit I don’t follow strict TDD in all of my projects, I have found that having the discipline to write your tests first as often as possible can save a lot of time on a project and result in a much cleaner API. It’s the difference between building a class and exposing what you think the API should look like, versus writing a test that uses the API the way you would want to consume it, then writing the class to fulfill the need.
