Meeting Information

Title: Practical Test Driven Development

So you've listened to the great minds of Agile development, and agree that Test Driven Development sounds awesome ... but your code base isn't even remotely setup for dependency injection, or interface, or any of that. So you gave up. Well fear not my friends, I'm here to help you understand how to do TDD, without starting from a blank slate. It is perfectly possible to make TDD happen, but you just need to learn to use a couple of tricks that make refactoring your existing code less painful.
