If your code has little or no test coverage, you're working too hard. While testing may seem like a lot of extra work, it's really a way to debug your code before you even write it, and to make sure it keeps working when you change it later on. In this session I'll share my journey from a "non-tester", to "pragmatic tester", and finally to "test-first developer". I'll share what I've learned along the way, and describe how writing tests first fundamentally changed the way I write code.

Absolutely brilliant - part stand-up, part inspiring tech talk. Your expression and comedic timing was perfect. Probably the most fun talk I've ever seen. I only wish there was more of it!

Absolutely great presenter. Could you post copy of PowerPoint?

Funny and engaging walk through how Bryce came to believe strongly in the power of tests.

I reluctantly came to this presentation because I though, "oh here we go, another presentation on testing and how we need to be doing it. How original." But I ended up enjoying this presentation immensely because of the slightly different point of view, the humor and engaging personality, and the down to earth way of approaching the topic.

Great talk with a unique humorous twist, entertaining and inspiring. Well done!
