Thanks for all your replies!

I'm already writing tests, and I've been also pushing this for long. To some extent, a lot of devs accepted that testing is important, but it's also important to know what and how to test.

The problem right now is that our microservices are still pretty dumb, and they don't see the value of adding those integration tests. My main argument now is that you can't really run your code if you don't have tests in such an architecture because you'd need all the other services to be running, which is a no-go. I'll focus on that point for now
