Presenter: Steven Baker (@srbaker)
Steven will be talking about Test Driven Development (TDD).

Pretty please, read this article to get your brain primed as to "why on earth you want to write tests before you write the implementation". http://blog.8thlight.com/uncle-bob/2013/09/23/Test-first.html
This will be an very useful session regardless of the technology that you use.
In the third grade, Steven missed an opportunity to corner the Hockey Trivia video game market when he made such a huge mess of his software he had to rewrite it. As with most rewrites, it was a huge failure, and Steven still hasn’t forgiven himself. Since then, he has been obsessed with learning how to produce high quality software, and has been helping teams do just that. Along the way he’s developed tools, delivered talks, and yelled over pints about how to improve software.
