Now, somewhere half way the show, Carl Franklin asked the following question to John Lam who gave the most excellent answer:
Carl Franklin: Let me ask you this question. Should you use a dynamic language if you're not using "test first" methodologies.
John Lam: I don't think you should be using any language if you're not doing some kind of unit testing inside of the software that you're creating.
I find it most encouraging that this guy is working at Microsoft (I also just read that the Hanselman is going to work for Microsoft too). I believe that Microsoft should be preaching unit testing more and more.
I'm going to attend TechEd in Barcelona this year. I wonder if there is going to be an agile track of some sort. I'm not counting on it though, but hey, one can dream about a better software development world. Besides that, I hope there will be a lot of sessions on the DLR and dynamic languages.
