Green Field and Legacy Code Retreat

This workshop covers essential skills for productive Software Development. It is hands on, highly interactive - and will make you a better programmer!

We will practice Test-driven development (TDD), Pair Programming and Refactoring. In the first part we will apply these techniques to a green field project. Later on we will learn how to apply them effectively on legacy code, too. The workshop is programming language agnostic.
You will need your own laptop with an installed development environment (IDE, unit testing framework) and source control (e.g. git).
