Gojko Adzic's BDD for Developers
This hands-on BDD workshop will help you get the key skills needed to succeed with behaviour driven development and specification by example. Through simulations and practical exercises, you will apply the ideas and practices of BDD to solve the most common issues development teams have with specifications and tests. You will use Cucumber to define and automate BDD scenarios to provide stakeholders with visibility into software features and help the delivery teams drive development and build quality in from the start.

Gojko Adzic's Test Driven Development Workshop
Gojko Adzic's two day workshop on Test Driven Development (TDD) enables you to experience and learn test driven development by doing it. You will be immersed in a realistic TDD project, allowing you to learn the practices and principles of test driven development and try them out in practice. Through facilitated exercises and discussion, you will experience two days of working on an agile test-driven team. You will use and learn basic Test Driven Development practices including unit testing, refactoring and related agile practices such as continuous integration and pair programming. You will understand the reasons behind TDD and experience its benefits first-hand. Find out more here
Uncle Bob's Advanced Test Driven Development
An intensely hands-on and exercise driven course that focuses on the design of clean, robust, and maintainable unit and acceptance tests. Students will learn the principles of test design, and the practices of keeping tests clean. More importantly, they will learn the principles of designing applications for testability. Exercises include the refactoring of bad tests, the writing of clean tests, and the design and refactoring of applications to make them testable.
This is a three-day hands-on course in which you will learn the principles and practices of test design and described in Robert C. Martin's book: Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices. You will also receive this book as part of the course materials.
Exercises are in Java, but are applicable to C#, C++, and other object oriented languages. Find out more here
Practical Agile Testing with Janet Gregory
Janet Gregory's acclaimed three day practical agile testing course demonstrates how testers can become valued agile team members, how they contribute to delivering a continuous stream of business value, and provides ways to overcome common cultural and logistical obstacles in transitioning to an agile development process. The training course describes the values and principles that help testers adopt an Agile QA mindset, and how the whole team contributes to the success of any testing practices, including test automation.
You will be shown how to complete testing activities in short iterations, and how testers contribute on a daily basis during each iteration and release cycle. Through interactive exercises and group discussions, you will discover good strategies for driving development with both executable and manual tests. The course is filled with real-life examples of the many ways agile testers add value.

Pekka Klarck's Robot Framework Hands-On Training
Robot Framework is a generic open source test automation framework
for acceptance level testing and ATDD. It utilizes the keyword-driven
testing approach and its tabular test data syntax is easy enough to
learn also for non-programmers. This hands-on Robot Framework training
will show you how to create maintainable acceptance tests with Robot
Framework and how to use various features of the framework effectively.
We will also go through how to use Robot Framework for Acceptance Test
Driven Development (ATDD) and how to extend it with your own test
libraries. Find out more here
