"I don't do as much Test-Driven Development as I should; it's my shame."

The more time I spend at recent development conferences, the more I see this sentiment echoed. Developers get the impression that they should do TDD, but they don't.

Sometimes they don't know how to do it effectively, so it ends up a mess.

Sometimes they don't know when they should do it, so it ends up being overapplied. Sometimes they don't really know what it is, so they end up treating it in odd ways.

In this talk, you'll get answers for all of the above and more. You'll understand TDD better, you'll understand how to be more effective, and you'll learn to let go of that little voice that says you should do more.


Speaker: Gary Fleming


Speaker Bio:

As an agile coach focussing on technical practices and software crafting, Gary Fleming tries to help teams fill the gaps they have when it comes time to do the work.

Sometimes that means helping development teams better their testing practices, increasing their communication, or learning how to do reliable, well-structured, well-tested, continuous delivery many times per day.
