  • Least favorite thing about dev: That there seems to be a never ending wave of new technologies that do the same thing just a little little differently, but offer little value over prior art.
  • Tdd knowledge: It stand for Test Driven Development. It's a tactical method for development where you write all the tests first such that they fail. Then impl till they all succeeded. I think BDD is a superior mindset, but is basically the same tactic.
