Unit Testing - Everyone's doing it, right? Maybe not

Unit Testing

Yes, I know, Unit Testing, everyone should be doing it right? Like Source Control, its one of those things, that everyone knows we should be doing, but its amazing how many people / projects are not using it. Sean Corfield mentioned in one conversation, how he was amazed when hiring, that the percentage of developers using Unit Testing (and Test Driven Development - more on that another day) was as low as it was. 

In this post, we'll try to define what Unit Testing is, some of the reasons people don't use Unit tests, and why those excuses don't hold up, and why those using Unit Testing like them so much.
