in thread Does anybody write tests first?

Saying that "it didn't convince me" in my last post was a deliberate choice of phrasing, because I already was pretty much convinced, even though most of my projects are just me. :) And I absolutely agree that the code in there is a big plus, although personally I wouldn't use the auto-smoke because I do run tests manually, usually (much) more than once an hour, because, if something goes wrong, I find it easier to debug the code immediately after writing it.

My point was just that the presentation you linked to isn't going to convince anyone that they should use tests because it focuses entirely on how you should test and assumes you already know why you should test, which pretty well negates your earlier comment that "If [this presentation] doesn't convince you of the benefits of a good testing strategy, I don't think anything will".
