TDD Slow

Is your TDD slow? It doesn’t have to be that way!

The term putting the cart before the horse is fairly easy to understand analogy that means we’re doing tasks out of order. The cart here can’t pull the horse, that just wouldn’t work, unless the cart was motorised. I guess the horse could push the cart, but it makes everything a lot harder. Anyway, we’re already getting off topic. Test Driven Development makes us question which is the horse and which is the cart. Is the development our horse or the testing? Historically, it was a given that we would develop our code first and tests would (sometimes) follow, but in the modern age TDD is an accepted and exercised practice where a developer would understand the functional behaviour of a given function or class and write tests first that enforces that behaviour. Once the bounds of the new code have been put into place, a developer can safely code with a happier feeling that their development code will match the brief expected of it. So which is the horse? Well, it depends if you follow TDD practices or not!
