TDD Uncertainty

Scott Bellware was in town today for a TDD presentation. I am not sure how successful he was in persuading the audience that writing tests first and developing in tiny increments would help improve their code (it's a paradigm shift that takes some getting used to) but nevertheless it was an informative and at times amusing presentation. And it's great to see people of this caliber coming to Idaho.

In addition he did make me aware if some great tools such as Rhino Mocks (NMock hasn't been updated since June 2004 and could do so much more). It was also interesting to note that he actually used Spring .NET which rocks in the Java world but seems to be struggling to gain traction in Microsoftland.
