I hold that most every programmer does write tests. I read somewhere that a big part of our work is spend writing tests. Think about it: when you write functionality you always have a main program to see if your code still works. That's a test! We change the test frequently and don't write it first. If we did that, and think more about the tests, invest some time, save them and make the results meaningful we gain a lot of safety for a little more investment in time :-)
