comment How can I use unit tests and TDD to test an app that relies mostly on database CRUD operations?
@randomA correct, I edited my question to explicitly say that. I don't understand why you're recommending I change the question. Can you elaborate? I want to keep the unit test part in there because I'd rather be writing unit tests than integration tests (although I'm aware that unit testing != TDD)

comment What kind of code would Kent Beck avoid unit testing?
@Telastyn If you're saying, "Kent Beck could just reply to that other question (or that I could do it on his behalf if he replies)" I see your point.

@Telastyn JoshKelley's answer shows otherwise, but that's your right. Besides, if Kent Beck replies to my email I'll be able to post it as an answer anyway. But I won't be able to do this is the issue is closed.

FWIW, I don't come to your conclusion about many objects collaborating together. I think he advocates independence for test stability and reproducible results. In fact, to me it seems impossible to avoid "many objects collaborating together" unless you were stubbing/mocking.

@MichaelT nope, I'll do that now though. Good idea. If he replies I'll post the answer here.

@GlenH7 after skimming those answers I'm not satisfied (but of course, that's just my opinion). For example, look at UncleBob's answer. He doesn't even acknowledge that such a situation exists. I really think there's value in understanding Kent Beck's position, not just a general, "What's your opinion?" After all, he's the father of TDD.

How is this different from a mock?

comment Should we test all our methods?
I'm still making up my mind on this question, but here's a talk of someone who has decided the answer is "no". Ian Cooper: TDD, where did it all go wrong To summarize this great talk, you should test outside-in and test new behaviors not new methods.

comment I'm struggling with abstracting my animation code in my game using a functional style. How can I do this?
It also seems to be against the design of the Entity Component System design pattern. That said... If you think I should still just put the function in my state, I'll trust you on this.
