Phil Haack has an interesting post on some research regarding the effectiveness of Test Driven Development. I'm really glad to know that this sort of work is going on, and the results are, er, moderately encouraging to the TDD enthusiast. This topic of research supporting methodologies has been a bit contentious of late. These subjects seem like they would be very difficult to analyze because there are some many factors involved (from skill level of the individual developers to the qualification of 'what good code is'.) Nevertheless, carry on my good researchers!
Now, I want to hook up with a CS department. Anyone out there from the FSU CS department reading this? :-)
