SPEED CODING LONDON 2011, BEYOND BASIC TDD
just like speed dating... but with code... and better
Inspired by an openspace session at CITCON London on practices and techniques that take people beyond basic TDD, we have organised four intensive hands-on coding workshops in 2011 to explore the advanced topics of test driven development and object design.
In these workshops, you'll work in pairs, frequently switching who you'll pair with, to explore different models, provide and benefit from pair coaching. Bring your own laptop and work in your favourite IDE/language. The speed coding exercises are designed by Gojko Adzic, who will facilitate the workshops.
DATES & THEMES
Each workshop will take place over one day:
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN?
- How to get more out of unit testing and TDD
- Pros and cons of various approaches to TDD design
- How others approach solving the same problem
- How to evolve design with TDD to make it fit for purpose now, but also ready for the future
ARE THESE WORKSHOPS FOR YOU?
In the traditional Shu-ha-ri
model, this workshop is on the second ("Ha" - detach) level. At the
second level, students are expected to stop blindly following a single way of doing things and learn the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches.
To participate and benefit from this workshop, you should have a solid knowledge of Java or .NET and at least one year of experience with TDD and be comfortable with pair programming. This workshop deals with advanced topics and you will be expected to know your way around an IDE, unit testing tools, mock libraries, version control and CI tools.
Tickets for each workshop go at £300 (+VAT) and are limited, so if you fancy some intensive learning in a fun environment, get your skates on and book now!
