Matt Glaman Advocating Test-Driven Development

Matt Glaman discusses the benefits of Test Driven Development (TDD), especially using the Test Helpers module for Drupal. Advocating for writing tests before coding, he argues this method saves time by avoiding lengthy debugging sessions. Although TDD may seem slower, it fosters a more thoughtful approach to coding, enhancing productivity. He prefers Kernel and Unit tests over Drupal’s Functional suites for their speed and efficiency. The article underscores TDD's advantage in handling bug reports efficiently by verifying the issues through tests first, thus providing faster feedback and saving developmental resources.

On Talking Drupal podcast #446, Alexey Korepov discusses Test Driven Development and introduces the Test Helpers module for Drupal unit tests. Matt's blog post is based on the discussions over this podcast episode.
