One test to rule them all

November 5, 2013

Today we continued Jetpack projects, with the notable exception of a code academy learn up for the developers. The code academy was on testing and how it can significantly improve overall code quality and structure by utilizing the Test Driven Development principles. Nikolay did a fantastic job of leading us through the day. We utilized pair programming, worked in 40 minute sprints, and changed pairs each time. The task was the same each round and involved building the Game of Life. At the end of the 40 minutes we had to immediately delete the code and start again from scratch.

After an entire day of this is was completely mentally exhausted. A bunch of the group went to visit Old San Juan, which sounded fantastic, but I went back to the house and slept. Yay

That is all for today. No pics, sorry
