Practical Unit Tests, GDC 2014

I gave my talk yesterday on how bad unit tests can slow iteration, and how you can fix them. The turnout was fantastic, and we had a great roundtable afterwards in the wrap-up room. It was 8 years since the last test-focused GDC talk, and hopefully the organisers will now realise there’s an appetite for more on this topic.

I want to do a recording of the session next week (it’s only 25 minutes) and post it up here, but in the meantime the slides are below. Hopefully they make some sense without the audio.
