STARWEST 2007 - Software Testing Conference


Why is "Test Driven Development" Not Driven by Testers?

For years, testers implored developers to do better unit testing. Our pleas fell mostly on deaf ears. Testers were constantly frustrated, finding bugs that should never have escaped the developers. Then, out of nowhere, a few developers started preaching Test Driven Development-test early and often, write unit tests for the code, then write the code. Suddenly, unit testing was cool! Why did testers fail to entice developers to test earlier, more, and better? Why is Test Driven Development a practice that was not driven by testers?
