Joe Payette Talks Test Driven Development at November 6 NYS Forum Meeting

Joseph Payette, Jr., Greane Tree’s Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, and Frederick Brandyburg, Principal Consultant, CA Technologies, will present a program to members of the NYS Forum on November 6, 2015 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The program is titled “Cleaning the Windshield: Maximizing Results through Test Driven Development, Behavior Driven Development & Model Based Testing.”

Testing during software development has been likened to looking out the windshield while driving–it lets you see where you are going and arrive safely at your destination. Yet too often developers view testing as a tedious chore and postpone or neglect it, with predictably disastrous results. In this session, Joseph and Frederick will demonstrate how Test Driven Development, with its red/green/refactor cycle, can provide immediate and ongoing feedback during coding and give developers the information and confidence to develop clean, sustainable code. They will consider the differences between Test Driven Development (TDD) and Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and look at some tools for both. They’ll talk about automated testing and integrated testing, and look at ways to ease the transition from a “test last” mindset to a robust test driven development practice.
