+1 to that.
I love and use RSpec (I never _really_ learned Test::Unit). But if you
already know Test::Unit then I'd recommend that you try TDD with
Test::Unit. You can practice the workflow/mindset of writing a failing
test, then coding to make it pass (and then refactoring) without
having to learn new syntax at the same time.
Thats a very good point both of you have made, I guess I got pulled in
to the fact that most people like to use TTD with something other than
Test::Unit, but you're both right, there doesn't seem to be any reason
why I shouldn't start working like this.
I will have a look at the screencasts some time but for now I will give
TTD and Test::Unit a shot
Thanks for your input
