Talks & Seminars
eXtreme Programming and Test Driven Development
Assoc. Professor Rick Mugridge, University of Auckland
Date & Time: May 22, 2003 04:00
Venue: Seminar Hall
We introduce the ideas of eXtreme Programming (XP) and Test Driven Development (TDD) and show how they ask fundamental questions about software development. The scientific method serves as a good metaphor for several practices in XP. We explore the commonalities and differences and show that the scientific method, by analogy, can be used to better understand TDD (and vice versa). Finally, we consider some of the issues at the forefront of the development of the XP approach.
