About this Episode
David Heinemeier Hansson is the creator of Ruby on Rails, founder & CTO at Basecamp (formerly 37signals). He's a best selling author, public speaker, and even a Le Mans class winning racing driver.
All of that, of course, is awesome. But that's not why I asked him on the show. In 2014, during a RailsConf keynote, he started a discussion about damage caused by TDD. This was followed by a few blog posts, and then a series of recorded hangouts with Martin Fowler and Kent Beck. This is what I wanted to talk with David about; this unconventional yet practical and intuitive view of how testing and development work together.
It's a great discussion. I think you'll get a lot out of it.
If you value your time, you owe it to yourself to try PyCharm.
The team has set up a link just for Test & Code listeners.
If you use the link testandcode.com/pycharm, you can try
PyCharm Professional for free for 3 months.
This offer is only good until Sept 1, so don't forget.
Plus using the link (I'll also have it in the show notes) lets PyCharm know that supporting Test & Code is a good thing.
