Survey results from my DrupalCon Europe session (Test-Driven Drupal)

Warning: This post is over a year old. I don't always update old posts with new information, so some of this information may be out of date.

Here are the results from the session survey for my DrupalCon session (Test-Driven Drupal) on Drupal automated testing and test-driven development.

In December I gave a talk at DrupalCon Europe on automated testing and test-driven development in Drupal. At the end of each session, the attendees were shown a survey to complete and the results have just been released to the speakers.

Here are the results from my session, and I've included the screenshot of the graphs at the bottom of this post. I'd like to thank everyone who attended the session live, and those who left valuable feedback afterward.
