re: The worst developers are those who complain there are no tests in a project VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

If I understood correctly those developers are complaining that other people wants to make their work easier and safer by using proper tools to do that... I would say that deciding not to use a tool that can make our lives easier seems like a very bad choice, no matter how you look at it.

And yes, of course, tests can be taken too far and become an obstacle, but same thing can be said about almost any tool at hand: types, IDEs, dependencies...

 

Maybe they believe that it is possible to write perfect code that will never break...

 

I know someone like this; will not work with them again.

 

Could be... From my point of view the safest believe you can have as a developer is that everything is broken or is going to be broken at some point.

No mater how much experience you might have, how easy the problem to solve is or which tools you use. I guess that's because we engineer solutions based on trade offs and we always leave little things behind. Maybe it is because we don't always fully understand the problems we solve...
