Is Test Driven Development Dead?

 

This is a topic that should get you all of thinking. David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH) in his keynote at Railsconf 2014 challenged the value of TDD as it is often implemented. He went on to write two posts expanding on the theme: “TDD is Dead – Long Live Testing” and “Test-induced design damage” This prompted a series of conversations between Martin Fowler, Kent Beck and DHH. We'll view some of the YouTube videos to kick off our meeting, then let the discussion go from there.

 

If you are passionate about testing, be sure to join us. Not passionate about testing? Your are welcome too. Either way We're sure you'll learn something.

 


Mike Vincent and David Wells will be facilitating the discussion
