Session Descriptions

Emergent Design
Our industry is at a major turning point; moving away from waterfall-style development methodologies and toward lighter-weight, Lean-Agile development. This brings great promise. However, it also creates interesting questions. What is the role of design in an Agile process? How much design is enough, and how much is over-design? Are patterns still relevant, with TDD and refactoring gaining momentum throughout the industry? Emergent Design is an integration of patterns, testing, and refactoring that enables the strong synergy of these disciplines to empower teams to be more effective in a responsive, agile environment. This seminar will be given by the author of the book “Emergent Design”, Scott Bain.
Sustainable Test-Driven Development
Test-Driven Development has gained a strong foothold among many development teams, but as popular as it has often become, many organizations struggle to keep the testing effort sustainable over a long period of time. As test suites become large, they tend to become significantly difficult and time-consuming to maintain, which is required to keep the TDD effort alive. The purpose of this presentation is to create a context for TDD focusing on those specific elements that allow it to be conducted in a sustainable way. Much of this seminar is based on the work being described at www.SustainableTDD.com.
