The Test Driven Development recipe is deceptively simple. Red / Green / Refactor. Sounds simple right? So why are many teams struggling to make TDD part of their everyday workflow? The TDD formula is the processed, mashed and refined representation of core software design principles that run very deep. To be fluent in TDD is to have a good understanding of software design. This workshop will cut through the scariness of starting the TDD journey, equipping developers with basic experience and a warm start in the real world.
