Hi Lasse,

I don't see a topic of test-driven development in the table of contents. What's your opinions on this topic? Is that a way not preferred to use in your book?

Thanks.

Lasse wrote a whole book called Test Driven. I'm seems likely he is still in favor of it .

I'm actually curious if it is more accepted now and not a specific item to mention.

I'm very fond of test-driven development. TDD and writing unit tests are two different concepts, however, and I wanted to write a book that specifically helps people write better unit tests – regardless of whether they write them before the implementation or after.
