Pirate Testing (Because Only Ninjas Write Unit Tests)

January 30th, 2006

I’ve got a new favorite development technique, “pirate testing”. I’ve used it on 3 recent projects, and it rocks.

And while Sam might have meant it literally, I’ve found it perfectly describes the practice of shanghaiing another tool’s test suite to given your own TDD a jump start.

(n.b.: May be harder in languages which don’t allow reopening of classes. aka monkey patching)
