Most useful learnings:
rationale for using TDD
how to start using TDD with legacy code
Concepts v exercises:
Presentation v discussion:
I would have liked more time spent on refactoring. But, as was mentioned, this course was a condensed version of a 5-day course so some topics had to be left out.
I would have preferred different examples to those in the book.
Very knowledgeable and engaging presenter that spend time to explain the reasoning behind the process.
I had read the book previously, so a lot of the material was more of a review. But the in-class discussion was great and I look forward to start implementing some of the techniques immediately.
Challenges to applying:
Training (forcing!) myself and others to spend time implementing tests instead of only working on new features and manually debugging existing code.
The on-site 5-day version of this course would probably have been more valuable to my team as a whole, including working with our existing code base.
