Devnology Podcast 021 - Nat Pryce on Growing software with Tests

Nat Pryce is an early adaptor of eXtreme Programming and a contributor to several open source libraries and tools supporting Test-Driven Development, like jMock. In this episode we discuss several topics from the book 'Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests' that he wrote together with Steve Freeman. We talk about the 'Londen-style' of Test-Driven Development, using mock objects to drive your design, listening to your tests and dependency injection.

Nat's personal blog 'Mistaeks I Hav Made' is on and you can follow him on twitter via @natpryce.

This interview is recorded on June 14th at the Software Practice Advancement conference (spa2011) in London. Interview by @freekl and @arnetim. Audio post-production by @Mendelt.
