“I remember sitting down with Kent Beck one afternoon to write this algorithm just for fun. I figured it would take us 10-15 minutes. He and I paired on it, test first, for 30 minutes, and got nowhere. Eventually we gave up […]”

I reread this fragment several times and literally couldn't believe my eyes. 30 freaking minutes for THIS‽ Test first‽ Got nowhere‽‽‽ Sounds so utterly ridiculous I don't think this blog entry deserves the “Professionalism” and “Craftsmanship” labels it's tagged with.

Hi Google+ users,

Please leave a comment on this post containing a track you really like and consider a great piece of music. Of course, there's a catch: the track should have no vocals. Other than that, feel free to post anything.

Thanks,
