No, but I am a hobbyist so my opinion probably doesn’t count for much. I just have the feeling that if you unit test then you end up writing the code to the test.

Reminds me of years ago there was a bad code contest on another web site. The idea was to write a bad calculator app that had to pass a predefined test.

One of the entries was so bad that no mater what numbers were entered into the calculator, the output was exactly what the unit test expected. But if anything else was entered it did not work at all. But as far as the unit testing was concerned, the app worked perfectly.
Within you lies the power for good - Use it!
