    On this episode of Working, David Plotz talks with Stephen Colbert on how he puts his show together and turns himself from Stephen Colbert into the character “Stephen Colbert”—starting from when he wakes up in the morning, what he watches for inspiration, how he knows the material is any good, all the way through to the actual filming of the show.

  3. Is TDD Dead? 4: Costs of Testing

    Kent Beck, David Heinemeier Hansson, and Martin Fowler discuss some downsides of testing and TDD: can you do too much testing, and is there a problem with teams valuing tests more than they value the functional code?

  4. Is TDD Dead? 2: Test-induced design damage

    Kent Beck, David Heinemeier Hansson, and Martin Fowler talk about TDD. David feels that using TDD leads to approaches such as hexagonal rails that is test-induced design damage due to the complexity of excessive indirection. Kent thinks it’s less about TDD and more about the quality of design decisions.

    Before watching this conversation you should look at the gist David prepared to show an example of the design damage he is concerned about. You might also watch the video where the much-missed Jim Weirich explores this approach to a hexagonal architecture.
