Why I no longer write unit tests (almost)

Lightning talk - in English

I’ve fallen out of love with unit tests. I used to be a TDD addict, and I would pride myself with spectacular code coverage reports. When I brought JUnit to the battle field, bugs would run screaming for the hills. But lately, I find myself writing unit tests very rarely. What happened?

Testing efforts need to be directed to where they yield the most benefits. For me, that is no longer unit testing. This talk explains why.
