Matt Frost:
TDD For the Unconverted
November 20, 2012 @ 12:45:46

Matt Frost has a new post today helping to explain test-driven development (TDD) for the unconverted and some of the things that come with it in practice.

You've heard of Test Driven Development, but you think; "I've got a horrifying monstrosity for a codebase, it's not testable so I can't do TDD". Let me be the first to tell you that you're wrong. I'm not into writing really controversial pieces, castigating people for not doing things a certain way. If you've considered TDD at any point in time, it's because you understand (at least in the theoretical sense) that having predictable software is beneficial. So this is for you, unconverted developer...

He talks about how using TDD can help you build confidence in your code, make debugging issues easier in the project simpler and how - despite the initial time it takes to implement it in the process - it's worth it in the end. He also includes a few helpful suggestions when your team doesn't want to follow the method.
