Test Driven Development: A View from the Trenches by McMichael Patrick
TYPE: Regular Session
LEVEL: Intermediate
ABSTRACT: Drawing on in-the-trenches experience from real-world projects, this presentation will equip you to make the hype surrounding test-driven development your project s reality.  Learn techniques for tackling the tough issues of implementing TDD, and see how to demonstrate tangible ROI to management.

Topics Will Include...

* TDD -- the promise
  - development team buy-in
  - management buy-in (the hard part)

* Out of the textbook and into the real-world

* When the going gets tough...
  - "That darn data layer!"
  - "That's just plumbing..."
  - What about the front-end?

* Test-first, but don't forget the metrics after!
