I'm very excited about the upcoming Testing and Test-Driven Development for Java Developers 2-day workshop, coming soon to Auckland, Melbourne, and Sydney. This course is already proving popular, with requests for on-site interventions coming in from around the world.
Already a key best practice in Agile Development, Test Driven Development (TDD), as well as related techniques like Behaviour-Driven Development and Acceptance Test-Driven Development are growing in popularity among developers, as both empirical evidence and research point to its effectiveness. Check out "Uncle Bob" Martin's recent blog entry on this topic.
Whether you are new to Java testing practices, or already have some experience in the developer testing and Agile development practices, this workshop can really help you take your development to the next level. It's a fun, practical workshop packed with labs, where you will using TDD/BDD and a host of testing tools on a real application, to develop real features, rather than the overly-simplified TDD examples you often see.
We cover not only the real-world practices that help you get the most out of TDD, but also plenty of useful tools and techniques, including Continuous Testing with Infinitest, Advanced JUnit techniques such as Parameterized Tests and Rule annotations, using Mocks and Stubs for state and interaction-based testing with Mockito, Database testing with DBUnit, web testing with JWebUnit and Selenium, working with Legacy Code, Behaviour-Driven Development and Acceptance Test Driven Development, and more. As you can gather, it's a workshop that is crammed full of goodies!
This course is designed to be practical and you are guaranteed to learn tools and techniques that will lift your game from day 1 back in the office. So what are you waiting for? Sign up today !
