Certainly I’m not the first to notice the similarity between Test Driven Development and the Scientific Method? Answering my question: nope!

Looks like a bunch of smart people have also made the connection.

My favorite observation on the topic: the Scientific Method can be used as motivation for using TDD. Certainly a clever approach for introducing TDD to a scientifically-minded person.
