Reminder: Perth .NET User Group Meeting: Thurs 2nd Sept, 5:30pm: Test Driven Development – the Agile Perspective on Testing with Dwayne Read
Please Note: Venue has changed to:
Enex100 Seminar Room, Level 3, Enex100, 100 St Georges Terrace
In this talk, we will look at how the discipline of being Test-Driven in an agile environment creates a before/just-in-time testing regime that drives the rest of the development (requirements, design and implementation). TDD is key to both optimizing (read eliminating) other “traditional” development techniques such as requirements specifications, design documents, etc as well as enabling other agile best practices such as short-iterations, architectural spikes and refactoring. We will look at the approach and what you need (people/roles, tools, process, mind-set, etc) to support this approach.
