Happy Monday everyone! As an exercise to get us through the week, let’s do the following:
- Take a deep breath
- Put your arms in the air
- As you exhale, say, “I AM ALLOWED TO DO DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE WORK WHEN PRACTICING TDD!”
- If you aren’t able to get that out in one breath, repeat step 1 until you can
Exploring designs, sketching UML diagrams, discussing architecture – these are things that are perfectly acceptable practices for teams performing TDD. The trick is not to back yourself into a “Now I have to write legacy code because we’ve locked everything down” scenario.
