Hi @kylegalbraith ,
thanks for your post. I like the idea of starting your TDD journey by using it for bug fixes.

If you are in a system that does not have any unit tests already then you are breaking new ground.

This is so true. If you find yourself in a legacy application with no tests, I HIGHLY recommend Michael Feathers book Working Effectively with Legacy Code. It's really awesome. He shares a ton of tips on how to get your legacy app tested.
