A revised version of Uncle Bob's "Professionalism and TDD" article

Since RailsConf, tensions have been running high among prominent community leaders surrounding the issue of test-driven development. This is unfortunate, because it means that otherwise valuable ideas are being obscured by the way they’re being presented.

With Bob Martin’s permission, I revised his Professionalism and TDD article to provide concrete examples of how to express the same thoughts in a more measured way. Included with the edited work are the reasons behind my changes, as well as some commentary from Uncle Bob.

Hopefully this serves as a useful case study for those who want to communicate more constructively!
