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)

James offers this additional background and a little reassurance:
