#23: Spiking and Continuous Spiking

To spike code, you stop doing TDD, throw some code together without tests to learn something, then delete the code and do it the right way. In this screencast, we'll look at spiking, and specifically the idea of "continuous spiking": instead of throwing the code away, transitioning it into TDDed production code iteratively. It's a dangerous practice, but doing it with care can help you through unclear parts of your application development.
