Your First TDD (James Grenning)

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 TDD 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#, Python). Bring a laptop or a tablet with a keyboard. You can access my custom cyber-dojo.org server with your browser 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. Bring a friend!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Why is TDD important and what problems does it help with?
  • What is TDD?
  • Experience how TDD prevents defects.
  • Experience the cadence and small steps of TDD.
  • Experience right-sized unit tests.
  • Get your questions about TDD answered.
