Day 9: On site at a client, more work on tic-tac-toe

I met Doug this morning at an 8th Light client site. I observed the SCRUM stand up of the team working with Doug and some subsequent meetings. It was interesting to hear some of the philosophical approaches that 8th Light encourages. I believe some of them were discussed by Uncle Bob on the 8th Light blog titled Clean Architecture.

Doug and I went over my tic-tac-toe progress and he pointed me to a post by Josh on cleanly testing input/output in Ruby on the 8th Light blog: Testing Code That’s hard to test. I am reading that and will then work on fancying up and cleanly implementing the console portion of my tic-tac-toe game. It is going to be tricky not to violate the single responsibility principle.
