The Myth of Advanced TDD

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/02

[WayBack] The Myth of Advanced TDD

People frequently ask me for “advanced TDD”. I have good news and bad news.

TL;DR:

if you think you need to to “advanced TDD”, then you don’t do TDD.

If TDD hurts, then you need to improve your design or code. It’s like going to the gym: it’s not the exercise that causes the hurt, but the lack of physical condition.
