Watching Amanda Palmer's talk the other day (, reminded me I was going to personally thank everyone who's bough Why programmers work at night. But I got lazy :(
Thanks for being awesome!
And if you've read the book already, I'd love to hear what's missing.

# You don't need tests
Unit tests are pointless. Integration tests are hard. Clicky tests are king.
You write a piece of code and you *know* it works. You just wrote it. You just ran it. You just saw it do everything you thought to try. Any unit or integration tests would have confirmed this.
Your PM gets your code and tries it out. They find a bunch of things you forgot. Bits of the spec that you missed, nuances in edge cases you didn't think of, strange things even the PM didn't think of.
The designer finds a bunch of crap that should've been obvious, but you're not a designer so you didn't think it was obvious.
