I just posted in #two-minute-week so I should probably introduce myself.
I'm a software contractor based in London, with my professional work centering around python, devops, machine learning and SDET.
In my spare time I have written some open source. After getting frustrated with something I later dubbed "the Norway problem" I created a YAML parser that ripped out the most frustrating parts of YAML and parsed the core of the language that I actually liked and made it type-safe.
This parser was a fork in the road to my main vision which was:
• A more humane way to do TDD in situations where orthodox unit test driven development makes no sense (like building a new page on a website).
• A more humane way to do BDD that doesn't involve Gherkin.
• A way to actually do "documentation driven development" for real - e.g. to have how-to documentation as a side effect of writing example based specifications.
This is what hitchstory is for - at least in theory, to make it easy, to make TDD always make sense, to make it fun rather than a chore, and to make 100% test coverage and 100% documentation coverage of your code a side effect of doing that.
If any of that interests you, we should talk.

Hi. Nice to meet you. I’ve been developing a language for documents that look like yaml. I’d be interested to see what you think.

sure, what is it?

Great! I’ll give you a look when it’s ready for a demo. Right now it would frustrate.
