I hate writing unit tests, how come everybody else enjoys it?

A session at Devoxx UK 2013

Any developer who cares about software quality should be committed to writing unit tests. Used well it can be a vital tool in every developer’s toolbox, but unfortunately the theory and practice don’t always match up. Easily-made mistakes can lead to brittle, unmaintainable and ‘write-only’ tests that not only become difficult to work on, but can lead to a hatred of unit testing in general. Presented here are examples of these mistakes with code samples, why you’re making them and how to avoid them in future.
