  • Function too long: Personally, if it is more than a screen page it is to long. Determination of when to create a function is when I need tor repeat the process more than 2 times.

  • Why are you attending: Needed a break from company politics. New manager used TDD in previous employment and wants to see it happen here. I agreed with him after a 2 yr FW dev cycle that nearly burned me out. I see a lot of potential for improvement.
