This is for my future self to see how I look like on camera while coding ;-)
And I am doing another experiment to see if people are interested in this kind of stuff.
I turned on Camtasia and recorded myself during my weekly practice sessions. Published on youtube and now I wait and see what the reactions are.
Tools used: mstest, VisualStudio 2012, Resharper and Notepad.
Figure: Is the font big enough? Is my picture small enough? Is my voice annoying enough? Let me know!
The TicTacToe Kata
- preserve and transmit proven techniques and to
For me its not so much about proven techniques, but more about practicing and exploring new languages, frameworks and tools.
Video 1/4 (7 minutes)
Starting the Kata with a test written in Notepad and then slowly building the 1st test by example.
I use the inconclusive Assert.Inconclusive() tests as my TODO list.
Video 2/4 (21 minutes)
In this video I start with 1 passing test and 2 inconclusive tests.
Tests drive my implementation and slowly I build up the API of the game.
Making my tests more specific helps me maintain them. And I discover that previous tests have value. Wow!
I have 3 failing tests and 4 passing tests at the end, just got stuck With with extracting the “GameBoard” class.
Video 3/4 (15 minutes)
In this video I fix the bug (1 red test) with which I got stuck with the previously. I continue to drive out the implementation of the “GameBoard” and implement more and more game rules.
Video 4/4 (12 minutes)
In this video I have the Game logic working to identify winners in a row.
Time to finish up all the game rules!
Now its up to you:
- What did you like in the video series?
- What didn’t you like?
- What could I improve?
