Your First TDD Experience (James Grenning)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Abstract:
You've heard about TDD but have never tried it or don't quite get it. The best way to get TDD is to try it by pairing with an experienced TDD practitioner. In this workshop you will get a brief overview and demo of TDD, but way more. We will all practice TDD in a language of your choosing (C, C++, Java, C#). Bring a laptop or a tablet with a keyboard so you can access my custom cyber-dojo.org server and begin doing TDD with no special tool setup. I'll set up a virtual pairing experience, I write the tests, you make them pass. You will know what TDD is after this session.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Why TDD?
  • What is TDD?
  • See how TDD prevents defects.
  • Witness TDD.
  • Experience the cadence and small steps of TDD.
  • Experience right-sized unit tests.
  • Get your questions about TDD answered.
