Discussion on: Do you apply testing in your side projects?

Thanks @alephnaught2tog for your reply! I'm also still a student, so in university, we learned formal testing in theory, but in our study projects, we never really applied it, because time was always very limited and the whole application was just a proof-of-concept, so nobody cared 😇
In my side projects I tested my apps just by trying them out and see if they crashed. When they crashed, I tried to fix them immediately, but if this took too much time I often let my future self a// TODO: note to come back later. But I think after I've seen formal testing can be so easy, it will reduce my time to manually testing things.
