'Test Driven Development' 

Oct 30 and Nov 6 @ SIGNAL Dunedin

Designing reliable software is best done incrementally using evidence-based assurance of the software’s functionality. To do this effectively, developers must know how to recognise unhelpful coding patterns, apply strategies for changing the code without breaking its functionality, as well as write tests for legacy and new code bases.

This two-day workshop is for those who are working in a development team with an object-oriented language. 

Learning outcomes:• Identify and classify code smells in production code• Use a library of refactoring techniques to remove code smells without breaking functionality• Design and implement micro-tests to detect existing production code functionality changes• Isolate interesting code components for testing independently• Understand how micro-testing fits into quality control framework• Extend existing functionality in an evidence-driven manner.

Normally $1400 + GST pp

Special SIGNAL friends  price $1200 + GST.
