Coding from Examples - A Dojo [Workshop]

26th March 2015 in London at Skills Matter

There are 17 other SkillsCasts available from CukeUp! 2015

SkillsCast coming soon.

This coding dojo will let you experience Behaviour Driven Development and Specification by Example from a coding perspective. We will hand out a set of properly-drafted scenarios with the rules to a small game. Using these scenarios, you will experience what it feels like to work inwards driven by acceptance tests. You will walk away from this dojo knowing what (A)TDD from the outside in feels like. Warning: this just might make you like TDD.

It is hard to get up to speed with Behaviour Driven Development, although the concepts are explained easily enough. To do it right, you have to learn how to interview your business users, choose your examples, properly write them up as scenarios, choose a framework, and only when you’ve got all that covered, you get to code to your scenarios. For this dojo we’ll be sure to arrange all these preparations for you, so you can hit the ground coding.

We will prepare for coding in Java. Please bring a laptop with IDE.
