Hello everyone.  Lately I've been playing with the Test-First Challenge by
Bill Wake.  I've been converting the tests into Ruby and Test::Unit, and
implementing my solution as I've gone along.   I'd like to share the fun
though, so I've set up a google groups based mailing list to do so.

The plan is that I'll send a new test to the mailing list two or three times a
week, and people can send in their implmentation for discussion, comparison,
etc..  Hopefully this will do two things:  help people get a bit more familiar
with test first programming, and learn from each other's implmentation.  If
you want to write additional tests along the way, that's certainly okay, but
try not to go past the currently tested functionality (i.e., additional tests
for edge-cases and what not are fine).

Once we work through Bill's challenge, I'll try to set up another challenge
(ideas, or sets of tests are welcome).


If you're interested in taking part, feel free to sign up (or just follow
along) here:
