1 Kicks

If yer code ain't tested, the waterfallists win.

Move over Fox News, Guantanamo and Ashcroft aren't just for the news scroll anymore. .NET is great, but there's a lot of really neat innovation going on in the Java-sphere even now. Two tools that take your TDD to a whole new level are on the horizon. Any bets on how long before they're re-implemented in .NET?

That makes no sense whatsofuckingever.

K, its called Guantanamo. Gay.

And Ashcroft? Fucking hippies. Jeez.

No .NET, no kick from me. And I'd tack on an additional -1 kick if I could for the political references....we're inundated with that crap everywhere else, we don't need it in technical circles.

Application creators political affiliations aside, it's a compelling tool and an interesting way to validate and enforce good testing practices. Get over the name and look at the tool.

"Get over the name and look at the tool."

I did. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH .NET -- THESE ARE JAVA TOOLS!

Color me crazy, but on a site called DotNetKicks you should be linking to .NET related content. This article is no more relavent to .NET than if I linked to a page about Adobe Flash-related technologies and saying "ooh, wouldn't it be cool if Silverlight could do this too??"

You're absolutely correct cdjaco, these aren't .NET tools.

But then again, neither were Hibernate, Ant, CruiseControl, JUnit or JMock, now there is NHibernate, NAnt, CruiseControl.NET, NUnit and NMock. IoC containers, MVC frameworks, DI tools, those didn't exist in .NET not that long ago either, but their influence on .NET development has been dramatic.

I really hope you can see a pattern there. XP & TDD tools in Java ARE relevent to .NET, as they will likely shape the way things are done in .NET sooner than you think.

say that again frogsbrain! I, as a .net guy, found that article very interesting and even funny. I wonder where else XP and Agile method are enforced that strict... The fact that those Java-guys have these tools way befor they are ported shows me once again that maybe I should look over the .net rim more often. And imo so do you cdjaco.
