comment How do you get developers to want to write good code they can be proud of?
"Nobody likes to be bad at what they do." You may be right here, but that doesn't mean everyone wants to be amazing at what they do. For some, "good enough" is, well, good enough.

This assumes that codebases end up being entirely refactored, which isn't always the case.

comment Writing Tests for Existing Code
Yes, because it shows that something isn't working as intended and requires further review. This will prompt discussion and hopefully correct any misunderstandings or previously unknown defects.
