Event description

Description

Let’s talk about test-driven development! What is it, and why is it important? In this workshop, we’ll go over some of the techniques and tools to help you write better tests and ultimately better software.

We’ll cover how to get started with test-driven development, unit testing basics and how tests can help you work towards better design. If you’d like to follow along with the code, bring a laptop with you. We’ll be working with VS Code and JavaScript. If you’d like to implement the same patterns in your chosen language, or just watch and listen, that’s fine too.
