If you look at the stage of any conference in the PHP world, people are preaching testing,testing,testing ... If you on the other hand look at the community, the percentage of people writing tests is really low. As a person who went from 'How can I ask for more time/money/resources for testing?' through 'ask for forgiveness instead of permission', to person who writes tests a lot, I still believe testing doesn't make sense. No, it doesnt make sense for all and everyone, often enough it makes no sense for me too. This talk will explore that fuzzy line when you have to shift your mind from one side to the other: in both directions.

Thank you for your presentation. For sure I will grab some good arguments from it.

It ended up being a lot of why and when to test, and how to defend testing even. I enjoyed the talk and loved the examples and analogies!

Entertaining talk. Key message I took with me: Do things because they bring value to your project, not because people on the internet tell you to do so.

Nice presentation and well presented and some fun examples from his previous work experience. His key take-away (do not test everything, only when it brings value) is really something to think about.

Great talk with interesting arguments. Also brought in a very lightweight and funny way which made it a great talk for in the afternoon.
