Introduction to Refactoring and TDD

12:30pm-1:45pm. Thursday, October 13
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. Similarly, disciplined refactoring skills have become, for many, an essential part of a development team's toolkit, especially when confronted with large amounts of legacy code. However, the effort it can take to refactor a system can be difficult to weigh against the business value of new development; spending time on one would seem to limit the time spent on the other. The purpose of this presentation is to create a context for TDD and refactoring focusing on those specific elements that allow them to be conducted in a sustainable way.
