Taking Baby Steps++

It was at our Munich Softwerkskammer Software Craftsmanship Meetup in early 2013 that we first did a Taking Baby Steps” TDD kata session based on a simple constraint: you have to time-box the phases when you’re in a “red state”, which is indicated by a failing compiler or test. If you can’t make it back to “green” in under two minutes (until your phone timer rings), you have to discard your current changes, revert back to your last green state and try again.
