I've had the privilege to work with some of the brightest minds and leaders in my 33 years of software engineering.

Test techniques play an important role in software development, and this is no different when we are talking about Infrastructure as Code (IaC). Developers are always testing, and constant feedback is necessary to drive development. If it takes too long to get feedback on a change, your steps might be too large, making errors hard to spot. Baby steps and fast feedback are the essence of TDD (test-driven development). But how do you apply this approach to the development of ad hoc playbooks or roles? read more
