Event Details

This intensive, no-frills version of our popular 2-day TDD training workshop crams the most useful practical ideas  into the most affordable and convenient single Saturday.

What's in it?

Stripped down to the absolute basics, you'll need to bring a packed lunch, a laptop with your IDE and unit testing tools of choice, and your brain switched on for a fast, challenging and fun-packed day. (You can tackle the exercises in any OO language. Make sure you have the right tools installed, including a mock objects framework, and are familair with their basic use before the course.)

In this one packed day, you'll learn:

  • Fundamental TDD (Red-Green-Refactor)
  • Triangulation
  • The Refactoring Discipline
  • Clean Code
  • Test doubles (stubs, mocks, fakes, dummies, spies)
  • Specification By Example (ATDD & BDD)
  • Responsibility-driven Design
  • Tell, Don’t Ask
  • Dependency Injection
  • Outside-In TDD using mock objects
  • Adopting TDD in the Real World (TDD Practice Regimes)

...and all in a hands-on way, pairing with people in the room, from whom you'll no doubt also learn.

Who will be coaching us?

Your trainer, Jason Gorman, founded Codemanship in 2009 and designed the workshop. He has run it in various formats with over 1,000 developers over the last 6 years. This is a compressed version of the exact same training given to corporate clients like the BBC, BlinkBox, Red Gate Software, Waters, Caplin Systems and Sky - only, without the catering and other frills.

Why are we charging so little?

Our courses are our best advertising. A typical 1-day public developer training course costs between £500-£900. But more than 80% of the training we do at Codemanship is delivered on client sites and comes via people who have attended public courses in the past, and recommend us to colleagues and managers. And we really enjoy our Saturday crowds of self-starters and passionate programmers. As well as meeting new customers through Saturday workshops, we've also met a lot of great developers through our workshops. If we could run them for free, we would. To cover our basic costs, which are kept to a bare minimum, we can run them for almost free.

Where is it?

Our cheap-but-serviceable training venue is a stone's throw from South Wimbledon tube station and a 10-minute walk from Wimbledon rail and tube station, with shops and cafes and wotnot nearby. There will be free Internet in the room.

If you're coming from further afield (we've had people come from as far as the USA and Russia for past workshops), there are several good hotels in the area, including:

Holiday Inn Express, Colliers Wood

Premier Inn

Your trainer lives locally, in case you get into difficulties or need some local knowledge.
