Talk by Dave Cheney at London Gophers 2019
I’m a fan of developing tests while you write your code. It felt right that I should make my tests the first consumer of my code (and I’ve found supporting evidence that this idea goes back to the early 60’s), but in practice, that is to say, the practice of TDD, this always seemed to slow me down and create brittle test suites.

This is a talk about how relearning my approach to unit testing helped me understand how to practice TDD more effectively in my development workflow, but more importantly, how to design my packages as a unit, focused on their behaviour, not their implementation.
