It's not about being a better dev, it's about creating a solution that solves your problem. Do you think your end user cares if you use jQuery, Less or your code doesn't have tests?

I agree that tool and framework don't matter if you are building a good application in whatever framework you want, but I think still tests are important. Otherwise, the developer will have to spend time manually checking for everything after changes.

Isn't that what testers are for? Or should I say, your end users? ๐Ÿ˜›

In small teams(startup) you are everything โ˜น๏ธ

My app crashing in hands of end-user sounds scary. Even though there will always be bugs and crashes they can be limited with proper testing. But, I do confess that I haven't written tests as an Intern.

Haha, sorry. I think you misinterpreted my jovialness. Of course testing is a net positive. Covering every single line written is probably overkill. Focus on the important bits, and as Kent says. Write tests, not too many, focus on integration! ๐Ÿค“
