A few weeks ago one of our software engineers Colin Bathe took place in the Arc of Attrition, a 100 Mile Ultra. He wrote a great blog post about it and we asked if we could share his story on our blog. While it's not immediately obvious for an embedded software company, we thought his tail of unknown obstacles, tackling each challenge at a time, and setting a sustainable and achievable pace was actually pretty relevant. We're also firm believers in supporting life work balance and we're extremely impressed with Colin's results. So if you've got a few minutes, take a break from the code and enjoy some slightly sarcastic, surprisingly statistic and pretty inspiring Monday motivation.

5 common misconceptions about TDD

We’ve talked a lot about our love of test driven development (TDD) at Bluefruit. From improving the quality to our products to increasing the productivity of our team, we’re die hard TDD fans. However, we realise not everyone is 100% sure TDD is the right approach for their embedded software project.

In response to some concerns raised about Test Driven Development (TDD) in the embedded software industry, we thought we'd share a video of one of our team leads explaining why he loves TDD and feels its one of the most critical agile practices a junior software engineers can learn.
