Comparative TDD Master Classes Session #2


Uncle Bob's videos are the classics of the genre. They explain the craft, methods and reasons with absolute clarity. During the whole year we are watching him and Sandro Mancuso developing a twitter like app using concurrent design approaches.

We meet on February the 27th to see episode 2 ( "This was a very intense session, and I nearly lost it at the end. We discovered that our concept of unit and acceptance tests differ markedly and we use them for different purposes. Sandro uses acceptance tests to probe the architecture. He uses unit tests to drive the architecture. His acceptance tests do not completely probe behavior. His unit tests do, but at the expense of the fragility imposed by mocks. Will that fragility cause trouble in the end? The benefits are clear, but are the costs worth it?"

Looking forward to the after video discussions!

This time the meetup is hosted and sponsored by Carl Zeiss Meditec AG (
