Nearly half a year to write this thing between my day-job and my inertia.
I just took a example project in C# with XML for the data and tried to TDD it on my own. I kept an account of all the decisions, mistakes and backtracks that I had to make along the way.
In the end I have
a 1000+ line code base with 170 odd automated tests and 98% coverage
200+ page manuscript that grew bit by bit
a much smarter me

One of the key take-aways for me, was never do a TOY example. Do something that's of some use as a product for you or atleast someone else. I kinda lost interest towards the end and rushed up the end.. I just wanted to switch to my next item on the list.
It's Ruby-time now !!!
