TDD: Beyond the intro
DDD Foundations - Talk
Beyond the "red green refactor" loop of test-driven development: what is the fuss all about?"
In this session we'll cover why you should do TDD, even if you're doing a hackathon and throwing away the code. We'll look at the design goals behind the tool.
- TDD as socratic dialogue;
- TDD as mindfulness;
- Testing as reasoning.
To do that I'll start by showing you how I teach TDD, slowing down in each part and doing techniques of lazy-naming, branch reduction, and purposeful-bad-faith.
Then we shall dive into the why.
