TDD - Test Driven Disaster

The current mainstream approach to Test Driven Development can lead to having tightly coupled tests locking us into an implementation. In this (possibly controversial) article I present how the popular approach to TDD can lead to increasing technical debt, and introduce an alternative which allows for more agile development.

Test driven infrastructure with Kitchen and InSpec

Using Kitchen and InSpec enables you to develop infrastructure faster, more reliably and with greater confidence.

As the cycle times for providing new servers and services decrease, the demands on infrastructure developers is increasing. To cope with this increased demand, we need new ways to think about building and validating servers.

A powerful combination is to couple Kitchen with InSpec, to provide a modern development approach to both the provisioning of servers and validating their configuration is correct.
