TDD workshop English

TDD workshop

Strengthen your software development skills with a workshop in Test Driven Development (TDD). TDD is a design method to make your code more reliable, simple, easier to understand and to have fewer defects - because a good design is a tested and validated design.

What the course will give you

  • With TDD you will be prepared to take over code from other developers, and easily modify, optimize, or clean the code. TDD will give you documented security, that your changes won’t destroy known functionality or reintroduce known bugs
  • The workshop takes you through the main topics of TDD but does not focus on any specific programming language, framework or unit-testing tool
  • You will be able to immerse yourself in TDD with the programming languages that match your professionalism, whether you are Java, C #, Python, Scala etc.

Target audience and requirements 

This workshop differentiate from other TDD courses, by giving you the opportunity to bring your own programming language, framework, and other tools, therefore making TDD more relevant to you. If you wish to bring your code to the next level, then this workshop is for you.

Learning form

The workshop contains theoretical walkthroughs and practical exercises, which will be completed in groups. The workshop-instructor will relate theory to real-life situations. The educational material is in English.


The workshop lasts two days.
