TDD and refactoring can help you write cleaner, clearer code, faster. You can produce nearly bug-free code that is much easier to extend and maintain. As useful as this is for new code, it can be a lifesaver for legacy code.
Once you get the hang of it, TDD is also more fun. It is, as they say, infectious. But don't take our word for any of these claims. Take the course and see for yourself.
Format and Contents
Our 3-day course covers the basic tools and techniques for doing TDD. The class at our facilities is conducted in Java, using JUnit and a good refactoring Java IDE. On-site versions of the course are also available in other OO languages. Short morning lectures are followed by hands-on programming sessions. You start using TDD as soon as possible, and for as long as possible each day.
You'll learn to write good tests, organize them clearly, and work in tiny increments of design/test/code/refactor. You'll learn to retrofit tests into legacy code without destroying pressing production schedules.
Our Code Plus Your Code
We supply example code and tasks that enable you to explore TDD and refactoring challenges and techniques thoroughly. But we try to design our on-site classes around the use of your actual production code as much as we can.
