TDD as if you meant it

A 150 minute Workshop by:

Adrian Bolboac─â

Mozaic Works

About this Workshop

In this workshop, you will:

  • learn the purest form of test driven development (TDD)
  • find out how to let your design be guided entirely by tests
  • build an application starting from atomic behaviours and not from design up-front

During 2 hours we will write code for a simple problem and then talk about what happened. There will be 2 45-minute sessions, during which you will work in pairs. After the first session we'll stop for a couple of minutes to see where we are heading to and if there is something we could improve. In the end you will delete the code (it can be hard, but it is worth it) and we will have a closing discussion about what we learned.

You will need a laptop with a working and testing environment installed for your preferred language. This event will be language agnostic. You should also have source control software installed.
