The Full Stack–Accidentally Pair Programming and Writing Unit Tests

In this episode of The Full Stack, Jesse and Jon continue their reboot of the windows phone client project. Having set up an MVVM application and decided on using a repository pattern on the phone that mirrors the server’s repository, Jon throws caution to the wind and gives it a shot.


Some highlights:

  • Moving to the repository pattern breaks the application workflow causes some interesting changes in how state is maintained
  • Jon and Jesse decide it’s time to start moving towards separate client and server databases with a sync process
  • Jon writes  a buggy save method and actually decides to write a failing unit test before fixing it
