Small Talk

Space A Friday from 13:30 til 13:55

Do you practice TDD? What about BDD? What about H (Hypothesis) DD?

Did you know that SDD (Stackoverflow Driven Development) is a thing? What about Fowler Driven Development or Beer Driven Development?

I spent some time working with some colleagues on the A to Z of *DD. The result was a full alphabet of things that at least one of us had experienced during our careers. Some serious, some less so, some good, some undeniably indifferent to bad to plain stupid.

But out of all of this I wondered what should REALLY drive our development? In this lightning trip around the alphabet of absurdity I will tell you the one guiding principal that we should all stick to when deciding what should drive our development.

James has worked in commercial software since the late 1990s when TDD was something you talked about but never did, pipelines were things that carried oil and Agile and Lean were words you used to describe athletes.

In 2006 James joined a startup and went on an exciting journey from 5 people in a shabby rented space through structureless expansion to Agile and DevOps transformation. In 2015 he started a new chapter of his life at ThoughtWorks. Every day is different now. He's variously, surprised, shocked,, disappointed and sometimes delighted by what he discovers as a ThoughtWorker.
