The Game of Life – a kata

I finally got around to putting a simple version of the Game of Life kata on the web.

This is the exercise which we’ll be using to teach BDD at Oopsla. If you’ve never heard of the Game of Life before, Wikipedia have a great explanation, and there’s an even better implementation here, together with some great seeds.

Have a play! And maybe even have a go at implementing it yourself!

    Check out Golly – a really nice cross platform Life implementation.

    Sigh. I just realised that I first implemented Life nearly 25 years ago!

    Cheers,
