Time: Friday 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

My go-to technique for just about every problem is a failing unit test. Many developers think of unit tests as something they're forced to write to hit some coverage metric, but when you look at it as a way to prove or disprove a hypothesis—it becomes a very powerful tool for problem-solving. It's...
