started with a series of video hangouts to discuss TDD, and the trade-offs around testing and architecture.
UPDATE: A few updates from Martin Fowler:
- guest post on his blog about cost and benefits of a unit test culture
- A page for these conversations about #isTDDdead, including links to recordings
original note: background:
- DHH: TDD is dead. Long live testing. “Test-first fundamentalism is …. [a]n unrealistic, ineffective morality campaign for self-loathing and shaming. It didn’t start out like that.”
- Kent Beck: RIP TDD “…now I need to hire new techniques to help me solve many of my problems during programming”
