Tutorial: Improving your TDD
monday, - all day
In this day-long workshop, we'll explore some more subtle aspects of test-driven development. Through intense, hands-on exercises, we'll look at aspects of TDD that are often overlooked, including:- what effect does test ordering have on your design;- how do you choose the next test to write;- the effect of isolation-based testing on your design.This workshop is language-agnostic, although focused on object-oriented languages. So, come spend the day exploring through code.

After 12 years of coding for money, Corey Haines said enough and went on a year-long, journeyman pair-programming tour. Traveling the world, pair-programming for room and board, he spent his time teaching, learning and just living as a knowledge-cross-pollinating, little, software craftsmanship bee. For the past three years, Corey has focused his attention on helping developers improve their fundamental software design skills through the use of focused-practice events, such as coderetreat. Lately, Corey has been shifting his attention to getting kids excited about programming through building games in Scratch.
