Uncle Bob nicely shows the parallels between accountants and TDD. One value gets put on the asset side and the other on the liability side, they add up to be 0. And then he questions why accountants meet their deadlines, even though they do things twice. Accountants do this for five hundred years, its a "law". We still need to get there with TDD, but we are on the best way and I second that and try to do my part with the JSCodeRetreat.

In this talk, Uncle Bob starts to set the context for why our industry has a hard time catching up with the speed and also why it is so important that we do spend more time on mindfully constructing software. It's worth spending those 1,5h watching this talk, or less if you 2x the video speed :).

IDEs are awesome, but sometimes in my way and setting up test runners sometimes defeats the purpose of being fast with tests, which also means having feedback constantly and continuously.
