More Tests or Better Code?

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away there was a wizard. Each day the king laid out a new scenario in which foes of the realm would test his fortress' defenses. And every day the wizard would come up with new measures to keep the fortress safe. One day a knight appeared at the king's court. For each of the contraptions the wizard had implemented the knight made the case that it was superfluous because the scenario it was built to counter could be prevented. When a dragon named Legacy appeared and threatened the realm, the king turned to knight and wizard for counsel.

In this Tech Talk, Sebastian Bergmann, creator of PHPUnit, will open his bag of tricks while Stefan Priebsch, a proven expert on software architecture and design, will talk about avoiding these tricks.
