Design For Testability Presentation Slides

I think I put more effort to this presentation because I had only 10 minutes. And I needed to relay the message in that time.

Apparently I did. But my point was not that DFT sucks. The intended result is good design, and that’s also possible without DFT. Testability is not a goal. It’s a solved problem – by tools (like Isolator) or languages (like Ruby). Readability trumps everything – it’s the one thing that will get your app sailing through the next 10 years (in average).

If you select tools that  make your code in a way you’re not happy with – it’s your fault. Change tools. If you succumb to your tools you’re wasting your boss/customer’s money.
