Tim Ottinger & Jeff Langr present the blog behind the versatile
Pragmatic Programmers reference cards.
UncleBob's Three Rules of TDD
This was one of the three TDD cards I posted while at Object Mentor. A more attractive set of hand-drawn cards then appeared (with full attribution) at Brian DiCroce's site a little while after. I still wish I'd drawn them first. The other have been presented here: FIRST principles and our site's most popular card to date, the Red, Green, Refactor card.
These three laws originated with Robert "Uncle Bob" Martin, who has provided such a wonderful write-up that there is no value I can add other than shrinking the sentences to fit on a card. Bob is a great guy and a solid techie. And by solid, I mean SOLID.
By the way, I've submitted a paper to Agile2009 to do a little session on doing "in a flash" teaching sessions with index cards. If it's accepted, I'll see you there.

i have a humble request: please use another font within your images. comic sans is gross, it makes me hurt inside. don't just do it for me... do it for the kids.ReplyDelete
What would you like to see? I'm considering hand-lettering each one, but Jeff has preferred a text font in the past. We'd like something that isn't too "texty", if you know what I mean.ReplyDelete
hand-lettering would be great... it always has such a nice character (depending on your quality of penmanship). another option might be something serify like courier / american typewriter.ReplyDelete
you could reach a compromise with something like:
good luck! keep it up!
We had some fonts that looked handwritten in the past but couldn't come to consensus on one. I figured Comic Sans was a temporary measure, and now that we're prodded, Tim went and found the J.D. font. My next card will feature it (if I can find it...). Thanks for the poke!ReplyDelete
There is a good TDD article on http://www.typemock.com/Test_Driven_Development_TDD.phpReplyDelete
I love Comic-Sans. Ignore the text-trolls!ReplyDelete
