TDD Conference 2021 - Why I Love TDD And Why I'm Looking For Ways To Go Beyond TDD - Alex Bunardzic
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.
Alex is a software engineering veteran with over 30 years of hands-on professional experience. A staunch advocate of Extreme Programming and TDD, Alex is currently leading DevOps teams by coaching them in TDD practices.
TL;DR: We need superfast feedback. TCR does it very well
My Personal notes
- We spend half our time playing the guitar and the other half tuning it
- The longer we wait before we make a change and see its impact, the more we dive in the dark
- We need to shorten the feedback loop
- We should deploy every keystroke to production like collaborating on Google Docs
- Creating from scratch a TCR system with an automated script going to commit or revert according to test results.
- We go from a steady state to another steady state
- We are driven by symmetry
- As always, we start faking it until we start making it
- Prime directive is for system to be always up and running
- Once we write many tests, we can run mutation testing
- Accidental complexly is the pain on our systems
