TDD does not drive towards good design, it drives away from a bad design. If you know what good design is, the result is a better design – Nat Pryce
TDD doesn’t drive good design. TDD gives you immediate feedback about what is likely to be bad design – Kent Beck
Michael Feathers: writing tests is another way to look the code and locally understand it and reuse it, and that is the same goal of good OO design. This is the reason of the deep synergy between testability and good design.
