  • I have this weird problem that I am addicted to experiencing new things (whether programming related or otherwise), but at the same time I am resistant to change. I was always curious about testing, but I didn't want to change my routine at work, even though I knew it was necessary. Now that I've gotten over the hump, I'm addicted.

    Testing seems like grunt work to many programmers, but what has really sold me is the problem I used to have: whenever I would make large-scale changes to a system, I would have this irritable feeling in the pit of my stomach that kept letting me know that I must have missed something. Now that I write the tests first, I know for a fact that I've missed something, but that's because my test has caught it and not an angry call from a customer at two in the morning. Testing just makes me feel like more of a man :)
