Session: Testing: TDD

Date: Thursday, 3 June 2010: Main Conference

This lightning talk describes the experiences with introducing TDD and BDD-concepts to legacy code-bases. The examples will range from unit-test-styles as a means of introducing the concept of BDD, and touch upon BDD using Cucumber through the wire-protocol to .Net. This will lead up to what benefits and effects this had on the development of the code-base, with comments from a skeptic, a convert, and a believer.
