Test Driven Dentistry Is A Good Thing
I saw this quote in the footer of an email...
"Test-driven Dentistry (TDD!) - Not everything should be test driven"
- Michael Fogus
I'm no TDD-lover, not by a long shot, but I dismiss the claim that you shouldn't do test driven dentistry.
I think you probably *should* do test driven dentistry.
First write your test:
Setup: Put on lead coat. Perform X Ray. Test: Assert: There are no unfilled cavities. Teardown: Remove lead coat.
Run the test: it fails. Fill the cavity. Run the test: it passes.
The only special nuance of test-driven-dentistry is that you must resist the urge to refactor the mouth, as this would require re-executing your tests, which may cause unnecessary irradiation of the patient. Side effects are an encumbrance but not a show stopper.Next → ← Previous
