Presentation: "Hands on Test Driven Development (TDD)"

Time: Friday 11:40 - 12:30

Location: Bayview

Practice makes better.
Join us for a powerful learning experience where you will participate in helping to solve a sample programming problem. A Coding Dojo is a get-together where programmers follow a pattern similar to the martial arts dojo to practice their skills. In this Coding Dojo you will get an opportunity to practice the extreme programming techniques of Test Driven Development, Pair Programming, Refactoring, User Stories, and Simple Design. We will be using the Randori format, to let as many participants as possible do actual coding.
