Code Katas Explained

The Costs of Developing Software

I am working to better practice test driven development. In a course I am taking on Pluralsight this graph caught my attention.

By practicing code katas. By being disciplined in "create test first", I will tackle the highest cost of developing software and be a more valuable professional.

Fake, Make, Triangulate

I learned about a pattern in creating tests where you can choose to
1. Fake it
2. Make it
3. Triangulate

There is a simple, somewhat contrived example of this in a Fizz-Buzz example of a function.
Pluralsight has a video on it here.
