  • Favorite thing about dev: I enjoy getting things to work with software and learning new technologies.
  • Least favorite thing about dev: Looking at undocumented code I didn't write and trying to understand how it works.
  • Tdd knowledge: It helps to ensure quality code. Having tests also makes it easier to understand how a particular piece of code is supposed to work.
  • Why are you attending: To help my team gain a deeper understanding about the benefits of test driven development and develop skills that make it easier to test their code.
