Test-Driven Development (TDD) has been so successful that it's now unfashionable. But many developers complain that being required to write tests just gets in the way of shipping features. That wasn't your experience when you first stumbled onto TDD a dozen years ago, so what went wrong? Were we fooling ourselves, or did the message get confused along the way?
In this talk, Steve will revisit the basics, the essence of what makes TDD work. You will explore some of the common difficulties that Steve sees with teams that are struggling. He will show how understanding the principles means that you can use to help you deliver more effectively.
