About our Meetup group:
Welcome to the Elabor8 Lunch and Learn Meetup group! We're really excited to be launching and kicking off in 2017. We'll be meeting monthly on the last Tuesday of each month over lunch time.
About the talk:
This talk will introduce you to Test Driven Development (TDD): a software development practice which encourages writing unit tests before writing the code implement functionality as a way of improving both code quality and design, and enabling refactoring to respond well to changing requirements.
We will discuss what TDD is, where to start, how it relates to other practices and what you can gain from it.
Finally, we'll look at common criticisms of TDD and discuss where they are or aren't well founded.
