Do you find testing addictive? or is it one of those things you dread to do?

In either case testing practices are likely to be part of your day to day activities, wouldn't it be nice to make it easier and more effective?

Codebases that have been written with TDD can have up to 90% test code, isn't it a good idea to pay attention to so much code you will have to maintain? 

This talk is a collection of testing practices identified and experimented during years of work as a developer and a software engineering consultant.

It walks through different techniques and approaches and the common pitfall encountered.
