First International Test Driven Development took place on July 10th.

In this series, I will include every talk together with my notes and further reading.

Hopefully, a lot of readers will watch and rewatch the talks, as they are worth several reviews.

Let's continue...

Bio

Ragunath has consulted organizations like Gojek, Dunzo, Tiffany & Co., Mizuno, etc., for a decade. He stabilizes fast-growing teams and reclaims codebases that teams are afraid to change. He is a fan of fast feedback cycles and also believes that you are only as good as the team you build.

TL;DR: Short feedback loops should fail fast, grab attention and suggest corrective actions

Talk

My Personal notes

  • On a good feedback loop, the system tells you when something is not right.
  • They help us catch mistakes early on.
  • Good feedback loops are not as good as feedback loops telling you something is wrong.
  • Negative Feedback loops help experiment much faster and figure out small solutions
  • IDEs shorten feedback loops
  • We must shorten the latency between the action and the consequence
  • IDEs with excellent feedback guide through available options
  • We classify stimulus under (Latency, Attention and Response)
  • Grammar.ly works in the same way, shortening feedback loops
  • UIs are very difficult to unit test
  • Excellent feedback loops should fail fast, grab attention and suggest a corrective action
  • improve feedback cycles measuring cost-benefits

The only way to go fast is to go well
