3 hours *hands on introductory level

Description:

If you’ve never been on a team that’s fully bought into Test Driven Development (TDD) and Pair Programming, then you’re missing out.  These teams tend to learn much faster from each other, be more cohesive, write more modular software with fewer defects, refactor with confidence, and are generally more fun to be on.

Come experience what it’s like to work on a team that’s using XP dev practices and expect to have some fun!

Learning Objectives:

  • Fundamentals of TDD & Pairing
  • Ping pong as a strategy for pairing
  • The rhythm of TDD (red / green / refactor)
  • Improved intuition about size of steps to take (smaller is better!)

Audience:

Developers who want to know more about TDD or pairing (no experience required)

Requirements:

Bring a laptop with wifi and an extra keyboard + mouse if you can.

Speakers:
