Unit tests have their place. It's just that I mostly developed frameworks, which need to be exercised by non-trivial applications, which then become the primary tests. I've also been working on a C++ static analysis tool. It does many of the things that a compiler does, so my code base often serves as the test suite. But I also did some container templates, and they have unit tests.

If you want to read something heretical, these articles by Jim Coplien are worth the time:
