Test Driven Development and Coding by Intent

Test Driven Development (TDD) leads to a project that is more maintainable and evolves better design. TDD is about writing your tests first and letting the tests drive the design (it is not about ensuring code coverage). The improved maintainability leads to faster, not slower, development. I will also discuss under what circumstances TDD should be used and when other options are better.
