Kickstarter Needs Test-Driven Development

Okay, this. This right here. This is why test-driven development for Javascript is so important. If a well-known site like Kickstarter can have embarrassing regressions like this one in their public-facing site, then what hope do the rest of us have? Once code gets big enough, manual testing (also known as "the hope and pray approach") just isn't good enough any more.

So, Kickstarter... I have a new screencast series called Let's Code: Test-Driven Javascript. It'll show you how to avoid these sorts of problems. You can back it on... ahh... Kickstarter.

PS: I love you, Kickstarter! Please don't be offended. :-)
