Test driven development at Transloadit

Interesting post about using TDD…

You have probably heard a few talks or read a few articles where test driven development is depicted as a magic unicorn that watches over your software and makes everybody happy. Well, about 18.000 lines of “magic unicorn” code later, I’d like to put things into perspective.

The truth is, test driven development is a huge pain in the ass. Writing those damn tests all the time takes a huge amount of discipline, and it doesn’t really get a whole lot easier with time.

But do you know what sucks more? The liability that comes without those tests.
