Hi John, As I dimly understand from the sidelines of late midlife: TDD has been around a long time, predates Agile/Scrum, etc., and is different from the test phase of SDLC which is the next to the last step in that workflow, followed by build.

Wikipedia on TDD:
Quote:
American software engineer Kent Beck, who is credited with having developed or "rediscovered"[1] the technique, stated in 2003 that TDD encourages simple designs and inspires confidence.[2]

Test-driven development is related to the test-first programming concepts of extreme programming, begun in 1999,[3] but more recently has created more general interest in its own right.[4]
My take on Agile and Scrum is that they focus on the group dynamics in the programming team, and attempt to modulate/influence them: and, both are a rejection of traditional, formal, SD models/paradigms.

I eagerly await enlightenment, even though it has been said that the desire for that is the wall between you ... and that OMG | :OMG:
