Mark Bradley - Test Driven Development: Dipping your toe into tests first

Writing tests before you write production code can be an intimidating concept, but there is no need to be scared.

During this talk we will look at the concepts of Test Driven Development and what it takes to write tests first.

  • We will look at:
  • What is Test Driven Development (TDD)
  • Why should you use TDD
  • How to use TDD

The talk will finish with a Mob Programming session where attendees can join in on ‘TDD-ing’ a simple piece of code.
