 +====== Example Driven Development ======
 +Test Driven Development (TDD) is all the rage these days. I personally find it difficult to write tests. I feel like no matter how much time I spend on them, my tests are never complete. I feel like not everything I want to test can be tested. I feel like I'm wasting time writing tests.
 +What about Example Driven Development (EDD)? Specifically for API's. Instead of writing a test, using some testing framework that I don't understand, I simply write an example of how to use the API. It's essentially a test, but it doesn'​t use some proprietary testing framework. It's simply an example that calls the API and gets the responses.
 +I guess it stops short of being a test because it doesn'​t test the result of the call (although it easily could).
