Learn Agile technical skills!

Agile is about building the right thing, and building the thing right. Learn how to build the thing right with Richard Kasperowski and Ethan Strominger. Benefits to you include:

  • Increased productivity
  • Be seen as a superstar by your colleagues
  • Go home early
  • Eat dinner on time
  • Have code that doesn’t break, and be known for that

You’ll leave with solid new skills, including:

  • Test-driven development (TDD)
  • Working with legacy code
  • Refactoring and refactoring patterns
  • Code smells
  • Code coverage
  • Pair programming
  • Mob programming

We learn by doing. We write code together, practicing code kata in a coding dojo setting.
