Featured speaker: James Grenning

You work in C and C++; you just finished a day of chasing bugs; you've heard about Test-Driven Development;  you are not sure it's for you. You've done TDD; you just moved to (or back to) C and C++; you know you need TDD; you want to see how it's done in your new environment.  Come to this meet up.  I'll tell you about TDD and answer a few questions.  We can tailor the night to your interests (I could talk on the topic for several days).  If we have time, you can try some TDD. Bring a computer that can compile with an up to date version of GCC, or Visual Studio, or pair with someone else that attends. - James Grenning 

(If your favorite programming language is Java, C#, or another object-oriented language, you'll still find James's presentation worth attending.  -  Conrad Weisert)

Mr.Grenning will elaborate on his recent book

and on test-driven development strategy as presented here:

James offers this additional background and a little reassurance:  

"There are other related papers and topics here  http://  Don't worry if you are not doing embedded C. This talk is useful for C and C++ programmers, embedded or not."

    Good talk, good people. Really helped me to get my head around how to use a unit test harness in a useful way.

    Great speaker! He had all the answers for the group's questions and was quite willing to help get people on board with TDD. I will get his book. I don't recall if he mentioned it in class but the test cases run in reverse order - from bottom up in the test code.

    Well prepared with persuasive demonstration. We may want to have a rebuttal presentation (or a panel discussion) some time.
