Hello

I'm just getting started with Agile Practices; this looks like a good place to start discussing and learning. My toolset will be Visual Studio 2013, TFS and Urban Turtle.

I'm also looking for a good active forum for discussing the finer points of TDD design and usage. I want to get a good handle on this and I have many questions.

Not wanting to post off-topic at this forum, I wonder if anyone can recommend a community. The busier the better--I have a lot of catching up to do.

Thanks,

Hi Jeff,

Welcome to scrum.org.

I did a quick google search and found this article, which links to many other discussions on the topic -

Good luck!

Hi Tim

Thanks for the link; I'd seen that post a while ago and I enjoyed reading it again. The author is a bit jaded, IMO, but that doesn't mean his article doesn't present good food for thought. Everything in balance and moderation...

I'm looking for more than just articles and blog posts, though. I'm looking for a (popular) discussion forum in which I might stretch my TDD legs and learn more about it in practice. Alas, the TechNet forum seems to focus more on the nuts & bolts of the toolset more than the higher-lever concepts of good test design, etc.

If you're aware of some such resource I'd be pleased to learn of it.

Thanks,
