Video of Bob Martin discussing The Prime Factors Kata
Note copied from Wikipedia: Code Kata is a term coined by Dave Thomas, co-author of the book The Pragmatic Programmer,
in a bow to the Japanese concept of kata in the martial arts. A code
kata is an exercise in programming which helps a programmer hone their
skills through practice and repetition. As of October 2011, Dave Thomas
has published 21 different katas.

The most useful thing I've found! Very informative and very useful!
Highly recommended! Talks about the importance of Unit Testing.
Good information about how to implement unit testing.
Good introduction to TDD.
From Demis Harper:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4910138/unit-test-examples-- contains a very good example and explanation of a unit test
-- Out of all the material we covered, I felt I grasped unit testing
the least. I mean I understand what it is, why it is, and how to do
self contained tests in the small, but I feel like there's something I
can't put my finger on I don't grasp. The book has good reviews and is
supposed to have great examples in it.

is a neat lab/kata, and it has a video solution in eclipse/LamdaJ
(terribly fuzzy), and another for NetBeans, the Video Solution for which
is found at:
<http://vimeo.com/8506325> (use HD for goodness sake, or you can't read a thing!)
A full lab assignment emphasizing TDD, but also ustilising a software
development approach, as it is team based. You could use it
part-and-parcel, or adapt it as you see fit. Oh, and its linked lists,
which is always good.
Another TDD exercise, this time implementing the game "Go". As it
stands, it is an example, but it seems it was and possibly again could
be a Lab, and might be used as the template for a custom Lab.
