iO Associates are pleased to announce the next of our .Net Virtual Meetups. This meetup, scheduled for Thursday 6th August at 7:00PM, will be with special guest Ian Cooper, talking on ‘TDD, Where Did It All Go Wrong’.

Since Kent Beck wrote the book on TDD (Test Driven Deployment) in 2002 a lot of words have been dedicated to the subject. But many of them propagated misunderstandings of Kent's original rules so that TDD practice bears little resemblance to Kent's original ideas. Key misunderstandings around what do I test, what is a unit test, and what is the 'public interface' have led to test suites that are brittle, hard to read, and do not support easy refactoring.

In this talk we re-discover Kent's original proposition, discover where key misunderstandings occurred and look at a better approach to TDD that supports software development instead of impeding it. Be prepared from some sacred cows to be slaughtered and fewer but better tests to be written.

There will be many opportunities to ask questions and open the floor for anything you would like to add or discuss at the end.
