Test First Development - Heath Malmstrom of DMi

Test first development is the practice of writing tests just prior to writing
methods.  Topics covered will be:

  - conceptual advantages of doing test first development
  - Test::Unit CPAN modules,
  - general xUnit Testing,
  - Test Classes, 
  - Test Suites, 
  - combining Suites to test larger "enterprise" projects,
  - ease of change management with tests, and
  - nicety of having automated tests with your builds.
