This week in Flutter #65: Do you write tests?

Tests are important in the development of all software. In some companies, developers don’t write tests. Those companies do not care if bugs reach the users. If you care about your users, you should test your apps.

In my career as a developer, there have been occasions where testing was not planned, because of time constraints or budget. But if you make testing part of your development process, then you do not need to plan for it, because it will be part of your implementation estimation.

There are a couple of links to articles about testing in this issue. Read them and let me know what you think.
