From the olden days of DOS, to the contemporary world of Software Testing, I was, am, and always will be, a software developer. I have in the past co-founded WebCollage, survived the bubble collapse of 2000, and worked on various big cloudy projects at Wix. My current passion is figuring out how to test software, a passion which I have turned into his main job as Evangelist and Senior Architect at Applitools. I religiously test all my software, from the early days as a junior software developer to the current days at Applitools, where I develops tests for software that tests software, which is almost one meta layer too many for him. Unfortunately for me, I haven't yet answered the big question of my life - I still doesn't know whether static languages or dynamic languages are best.

Egoprogramophobia, or fear of one’s own code: how testing can change your life

Short Talk (20 Minutes)

You fear your code. Once in production, you are afraid of changing it. A bug? You fix it using messy, yet surgical, hacks, rather than a refactoring that leaves your code better. Admit it! You fear your code. But there's a way out: just write tests. Writing tests is impossible! It makes my productivity tank! My boss doesn’t leave me any time for writing tests! These are all excuses for not writing tests. I will show you techniques that will force you to write those tests, and I will show you how they help you sleep better at night, make you more productive, and make you a much better developer.
