I have complicated feelings about TDD  ↦

Hillel Wayne:

I practice “weak TDD”, which just means “writing tests before code, in short feedback cycles”. This is sometimes derogatively referred to as “test-first”. Strong TDD follows a much stricter “red-green-refactor” cycle…

Turns out I also practice “weak TDD” most of the time, but I didn’t know there was a (derogatory) term for it. In this post, Hillel lays out why he does weak TDD and why he doesn’t do strong TDD. Oh, and stick around to the end to learn why he thinks TDD hasn’t conquered the world…
