comment How should you TDD a Yahtzee game?
Does this not create a Chicken-or-the-egg dilemma? When you implement AnyFullHouse (using TDD as well) wouldn't you need IsFullHouse to verify its correctness? Specifically, if AnyFullHouse has a bug, that bug could be replicated in IsFullHouse.

comment Why can't the IT industry deliver large, faultless projects quickly as in other industries?
Shouldn't that be true of other industries as well? I don't deny that external factors don't exist, but I believe that a change must come from the inside. If software engineers embraced their role as experts in their field, their recommendations and estimates would be respected and not second-guessed by management. Or am I being to naive?

comment When is unit testing inappropriate or unnecessary?
Exactly this! I have colleagues who time after time say "I'm done with the ticket, but now I have to write some unit tests." Those unit tests often end up bloated, awkward, and difficult to maintain.
