Delivering features: 10 Reasons why you should write that test! โš™๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘พ

Let's be honest, most of us would not write tests if we did not have to. Does anyone truly enjoy writing them? You know what? I'll just admit it: I HATE IT! However, in my little career working for a fortune 500 company and an emerging startup: I have to admit tests have made my life so much easier! I find myself being able to rewrite the entire codebase (with a different design pattern, framework or program language) and knowing that my tests are there to validate my work I can soundly sleep at night merging and deploying that horrific PR into the master branch knowing nothing is broken.

In summary, this is going to be a talk from a developer who hates tests advocating for writing them. Pretty contradictory and hypocritical? Yeah I know.. that's why its not going to be boring .. DUH! ๐Ÿ˜œ
