The instructor showed me the true value of TDD and the ability to support this type of development with really cool tools like Cucumber. Guided by Derek, we clearly saw that TDD is a powerful concept that everyone must truly commit to in order to utilize the value. TDD is not something that can be broken down and borrowed from. It is a way of life. Derek helped me understand that and realize the true potential of this coding style. Great instructor!!!!!
