Krakow, Poland November 18-23, 2011

Joe Yoder travelled to Krakow, Poland to attend JDD 2011, a Java developer conference. While there, Joe gave a keynote address on "Big Ball of Mud: Is This The Best That Agile Can Do?" and hosted a workshop on "Rulemakers and Toolmakers: Adaptive Object-Models as an Agile Division of Labor."


We’re excited to be offering a new course, Pragmatic Test-Driven Development, with a practical bent to testing. Test-driven development (TDD) traditionally means writing unit and acceptance tests along with production code. Some agile thought leaders push a hardnosed test-first practice, insisting that you always write a failing test before you write any production code. Then, in short programming and testing cycles, evolve your test as you complete your code.
