That would be a fun dojo to run, actually... give teams of 2-3 people a spec to work to, and an hour to do it.

Half the teams have to write tests. The other half are not allow to write any tests.

At the end, compare the production code, talk about the experience, and see who managed to complete the spec...

Might be a good submission for SC2012 if I can organise myself :)
