“The job of QA is not just to do testing — it’s to build quality in.”

How often have you heard that sentence? And how often has it been followed up with solid practices for actually building quality in? Test-Driven Development (TDD) is one of the foundational practices of high-quality product development. Popularized nearly 20 years ago, TDD is an important skill for high-quality software development. If you want it to be easier to build high-quality code, then you need to understand TDD.

In this session, Richard will discuss and demonstrate TDD. For those feeling extra collaborative, he’ll invite you to run the keyboard by remote controlling his computer as the mob performs TDD. He’ll also touch on and relate TDD to other aspects of code quality including refactoring, code smells, and when and why to use mob programming.

Who this for:

  • Anyone who wants to know more about test-driven development and how it can help your team deliver awesome products faster
  • Team Leaders, Managers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and Developers

You’ll leave with an introduction to solid skills, including:

  • Technical agility as a foundation of business agility
  • Test-driven development (TDD)
  • Extreme Programming (XP)
  • Refactoring and refactoring patterns
  • Code smells
  • Mob programming
