Any Agile methodology today will tell you that you have to use TDD to support it. But as it’s considered a developer’s job, many people with other roles don’t get into it. Which is a shame.
TDD is a great tool, not just for creating a better design. From my experience, people outside programming that paired with developers came out with a better understanding of development. The communication level between the team members sky rocketed, and of course, quality benefited – both in terms of early success in finding bugs and implementing features correctly.
In this session, we’ll do some mob programming. We’ll write together as a group tests and code for solving a real Star Wars problem. And we’ll discuss what we’re doing, refine our specs, as well as see what changes in the design tell us.
No need to know how to code (but you can join in if you can). Star Wars knowledge is preferable. The key thing is to understand better what the other side lives. Neither of us is on the Dark Side.
