Does anyone happen to have a link to an article that Robert Martin wrote about the history of test driven development. I was told it is a very good article that talks about agile and test driven development as almost a narrative in the future. Personally I think this would be very beneficial for my team to read to hopefully get some ideas across to them.

Hi Uncle Bob,

I wonder if this book covers some Design Patterns?

I am so excited to see this discussion!

I saw Clean Code at the bookstore about 10 days ago, and it was one of those "I have to have it" moments. No deferring gratification, no learning patience, no waiting for the next paycheck.

It is awesome!

Welcome, Uncle Bob!

As a beginner learning to write clean code from the off is quite important to me as is means there are fewer bad habits I have to try and 'unlearn'.

Welcome!

I'm intrigued by this book as it is one that I have been seeing interesting comments and reviews across the internet. I'm going to add it to my wish list and look at getting after I finish Lasse's 'Test Driven'

Hi

this book seemed to be very interesting one especially for those who writes code in unclean manner. I think this book will not only teach us how to write clean code but also avoid errors at the same time.

I just saw the book's TOC and it really interested me since it includes topics on unit testing.

Here's the link: http://csdl2.computer.org/persagen/DLAbsToc.jsp?resourcePath=/dl/mags/so/&toc=comp/mags/so/2007/03/s3toc.xml&DOI=10.1109/MS.2007.85

It's an IEEE article. You'll have to buy it I'm afraid...
