  • Perl's name is mud to most people outside the community (or so it seems), but in my experience, the Java community has a very strong reputation for TDD. It's probably partly because Java is still the defacto language for a lot of new development, and a lot of new stuff tends to focus on modern practices.

    But I do think the testing movement in Perl pre-dates even Java's. One reason why Perl doesn't use xUnit - it wasn't invented when the original test modules were written.

    We all have biases towards our language of choice, mainly because we have more contact with that community than any other. It's usually a good idea to at least be aware of that bias.
