I've seen it way too many times. As your application grows, so does your sloppy, untested codebase. Before long, you begin to drown, as your ability to manually test the application becomes... More > unrealistic, or even impossible! It's at these specific times, when you begin to realize the down-right necessity for testing. Sure, you might have read a TDD book in the past, but, like many things in life, we require real-life experience, before we suddenly - in a wonderful, blissful "aha moment" - get it.
The only problem is that testing can be a tricky thing. In fact, it's quite possible that your codebase, as it currently stands, is untestable! That messy, untestable spaghetti code that you might have snuck into your project in the past will never happen again. Trust me: as soon as you bring the phrase "how could I test this" to the forefront of every new piece of code, you'll, with a smile on your face, look back to your former self, and laugh at your crazy, cowboy ways. Welcome to modern software development.< Less
