One of the most interesting things about teaching TDD is that I end up also teaching what many of us would consider programming basics, e.g., if your code doesn't compile or is unexpectedly failing tests, stop adding more code to it.

This seemingly obvious idea is something that many developers do not practice, struggling with its consequences on a daily basis.

Perhaps we need to spend more time helping people these 'invisible' practices and less on shiny tools, frameworks, etc.

I guess this can be my first useful post. I will be speaking on GoTime in 30 minutes about TDD! youtube.com/watch?v=sqm02imjJ4

The heroes in teams aren't the ones pulling all-nighters, gambling big and saving everyone at the last minute.

So, for those of you who have just moved over from Twitter, I've been learning that a "favorite" over here is just a pat on the head to the author. It's not like Twitter which moves liked tweets onto other people's timelines & gives them reach. Boosting, however, does some real good in that it improves the reach of the tweet. If you think others may be interested in something you read, boost it! There is no dreaded algorithm, so the only way to improve reach is a boost.
