I'm a geek, a role-player and a biker.

I work for Diamond Light Source, developing open source scientific software for the UK national synchrotron facility. In the past I have worked in the robotics, mechatronics and laser micro-machining industries.

To be honest, my experience of the small shops I've worked in is that testing was all ad-hoc anyway, there being no formal testers and little time in the schedule for developers to waste time on writing tests. I've only recently started working somewhere that tests are appreciated and where TDD is encouraged (as opposed to writing unit tests off-the-clock, which I've had to do in the past).

To be honest, I would be worried about any test code that wasn't as rigorously controlled (through a Version control system) as the production code it is testing!
