New Course – Coding Dojo: Test Driven DevelopmentBy Alain Koffi Sessi
Emily Bache is an independent consultant specializing in automated testing and agile methods. She is the author of “The Coding Dojo Handbook: a practical guide to creating a space where good programmers can become great programmers”. This book is the result of many years experimenting with the Coding Dojo format for teaching and learning skills around Clean Code, Test Driven Development, Refactoring, and more.
Emily’s first course is a collection of concrete ideas on how you can get started with regular coding dojo meetings where you and your team can focus on improving your practical coding skills. You will learn how to set up and facilitate your dojo, and what kinds of collaborative coding games you could play. There are ideas for topics that you could cover, and examples of the kinds of code people might write.
The idea is to give you, the coding dojo organizer, the supporting materials you need to get everyone who comes to your dojo to practice better software development techniques. Kent Beck once said “I’m not a great programmer, I’m just a good programmer with great habits.” This course offers the advice and encouragement you need. Get together with some like-minded people and hold a coding dojo! It’s fun!
