An evening with Uncle Bob!

Apr 10, 2019 · Oxfordshire, United Kingdom

We are very excited to welcome Robert C. Martin (also known as Uncle Bob) to join us in April to talk about the laws of TDD!

As this is expected to be a very popular event, we'll be using our larger venue at the St Aldates Conference Centre, which is just next door to our usual venue.

Note that this will be on a Wednesday evening instead of our usual Tuesday.

Important if you're attending! ... To ensure that we fill the room in the event of no-shows - we'll start letting people in from the waiting list at 6.50pm until we reach our max capacity (on a first-come-first-serve basis). So if you already have a place, do ensure you arrive before 6.50pm, otherwise, you might find you can't get in. Please do not arrive before 6.20pm though - as we need time to setup before we start letting people in.


The Three Laws of Test Driven Development

The jury is in, the case is closed. TDD works, and works well. In this talk Uncle Bob makes the point that TDD is not a testing technique at all. Rather, TDD is a way to ensure good architecture, good design, good documentation, and that the software works as the programmer intended. TDD is a necessary discipline for those developers seeking to become professionals.
