Test-driven development: save your time, save your sanity, write great code fast
Presented by: Paul RoubTime: Friday, Jan. 10, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
For the skeptical: Both new and more-seasoned devs -- especially solo practitioners -- can have a lot of misconceptions about TDD. Mostly of the "it's extra work, it's extra code, I can't ship tests, why would I test something simple and obvious" variety. But magic happens when the light bulb switches to "on". Walk through the design of a simple-enough class, showing along the way how initial assumptions are often wrong; how to avoid making those assumptions too early; throw away less code; and feel comfortable and safe when you *do* throw away code.
