[Test|Behaviour] Driven Development

Whichever option you choose, I am a convert.
Previous projects of mine were met with a “*sigh* I suppose I need to write some tests, but I want to get on with the code”. TSDB Explorer is the first codebase I’ve written where the majority of code existed only after the unit tests. I have to say, it’s many times more robust, and I’m going to continue the trend in TubeHorus.
Part of me is delighted too at rcov and its “Here’s how much of your code is covered by tests”. There’s a definite warm feeling to be had when you’ve covered nearly all your code with tests, although as @bobtfish said – “That just shows you that your bugs are within your unit tests”. But I can always write more of them to make sure I don’t re-introduce bugs.
