Doing something a wee bit different for this week’s Mini Code Adventure. This time we’re looking at a small Roguelike game I’ve been making in Unity3d. It took me a lot longer than 5 minutes to get this far, but I thought it might be interesting to show a longer “fun and interesting” project.
When and why should you write unit tests, and just how important are they? Take a listen and see what YOU think.

Sites like Codewars make this kind of practice easier than ever, but the pressure of having potential employers watching over your shoulder adds a whole other dimension.
Because of that, I wanted to experiment with “live coding” through practice problems, talking through my decisions as I went along. This ended up being more difficult than I had anticipated, even without the live audience.
Now that I’m wrapping up my little experiment, I wanted to share a few things that I learned along the way…
