|Refactor Yourself! Learn how to Reshape your team for a successful TDD implementation||Tue, Feb 13, 2018 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST|
|Do you believe ‘TDD’ stands for ‘The Dark Descent’? When you ask developers about TDD, do they roll their eyes? Are the excuses of NOT practicing TDD costing your organization money and competitive advantage?
When the words ‘test driven development’ come up in developer conversations many are resistant to the practice. Sometimes that is due to the fact that developers have never tried TDD or have heard horror stories about how it slows down development. Regardless, TDD is an important part of the Agile journey and ‘refactoring’ the company culture can be daunting at times! In this webinar we will address the resistance to using TDD and give some strategies to how you can address this important development practice so that it becomes the norm within your organization.
