On the wonders of artist Jayne Riew's conceptual books & boxes: "intimate spaces that explore intense emotional states difficult to express in words alone."

An important talk on good design and testability by +Michael Feathers

I'm sure there are many possible good and testable designs, but how often is it that we as developers explore these possibilities? On my part? Rarely, if ever :(

Join us Tuesday, May 20th for part three w/@martinfowler, @kentbeck&@dhh. Keep the conversation going at  #IsTDDDead

"TDD as One True Way" versus "TDD as devil-spawned tempter" is not a productive contrast. Most of us have similar goals for development: confidence, impact, challenge, belonging. Test-driven development is one path toward these goals, but there are many other paths. This conversation in six parts explores tradeoffs in development, places TDD in those tradeoffs, and gives you perspective with which you can decide for yourself how you want to program.

Speakers:
Martin Fowler
Kent Beck
David Heinemeier Hansson (DHH)
This Hangout On Air is hosted by ThoughtWorks. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Future topics?

TDD- writing clean, well written test suites; integration testing. I've been applying TDD to Chef for a while (6 months) and I'd love to hear about how others do it. For example, I've been applying a few ideas from xUnit Patterns. Some were trivial to apply, some more different.

Cookbook design- writing clean, readable (de-coupled?) cookbooks. As a start here's a youtube video by Julian Dunn on the subject:
