Between London & Chicago: A Conceptual Map for TDD

All aboard as we travel from London to Chicago! These two historical methods approach unit testing from divergent perspectives. Unfortunately, few learning resources to explicitly identify with one or the other creating a confused and frustrating learning landscape for the novice and journeyman alike. During our voyage, we'll explore each school's philosophical underpinnings; not only how they test, but how they view testing, what they test and why. We'll discuss the relative merits of the two approaches, as well as how to implement each style. Finally, we'll develop a conceptual model for unit testing which can serve as a foundation upon which to evaluate and integrate other resources you may encounter along your testing journey.
