Learning Test Driven Design, DUNIT. WhereToStart?

Hi,

I'm new to Delphi and new to TDD. I'm trying to learn the basics of TDD and how to use DUNIT.

Lots of links out there on the web and a few good books (Ken Beck, et. al.).

Any suggestions of where to START?

Oh, and the best starting points I've found so far are:

Mr. Analogy, you'd better start with the original 'Test Infected' article:

You may also try asking in the TDD mailing list:

For a Delphi guy, a good site to learn a little about TDD would be Julian Bucknall's blog:

http://www.boyet.com

Links to his TDD articles used to be on the front page, now you can find a couple on his "Writing Quality Software". Even better, google his site for "TDD" and/or "DUnit".

And if anyone has a copy of Julian's Tomes of Delphi book they'd like to part with, I'd be happy to buy it.
