Abstract

Bosses hate unit testing. They see it as code that doesn't contribute to the final product. And maybe you see testing that way as well. But here's the truth: unit testing makes us faster. We'll look at specific examples of how unit tests save time in the development process by letting us code more confidently, catch bugs earlier, and minimize manual testing. With this in hand, you can show your boss (and yourself) how unit testing makes us faster.
