Hey hey ,
I’m going to be speaking today at the First International Test-Driven Development (TDD) Conference. Here’s a little blip (okay maybe longer) about my talk:
During my time consulting clients on digital transformations and working my way through legacy code, I started on my TDD journey. I would often forget the keyword “driven” in Test-Driven Development and apply TDD as a Test Before Development variant. I focused on writing tests before code, and so did not have much impact on the design of the code. But once I learned to drive implementation via tests and the emphasis on the contract, my coding style started to differ drastically, for the better, of course.
Throughout my journey at Postman, I was exposed to another approach in the contract-driven toolbox called API-first. In this talk, I will compare the TDD and API-first approaches, analyzing parallels and observing their impact on contracts in software delivery.
See you there!
