Test or Go Fishing - an introduction to TDD

Presenter: Paul Ardeleanu
Date: Wednesday 16th May
Location: Old Smithy's Dizzle, Mainzer Str. 16, 10247 Berlin
Time: 10:00 am
Duration: 3 h
Fee: 179 Euro (incl. VAT)

Whilst not a panacea for your development troubles, but certainly a headache for many, Test Driven Development (or any of its incarnations) can prove something of a silver bullet if done correctly and consistently; cleaner code and shorter QA cycles are two of the best benefits. In this session, Paul will get you started with TDD in Swift, best practices and tools available. We’ll be looking at prototyping & writing tests in Playgrounds, before migrating to an Xcode project, as well as the benefit of writing various types of tests and using 3rd party frameworks.

Bio: Paul is a software engineer, trainer and speaker specialised in data-driven solutions on mobile platforms with an emphasis on prototyping, best practices and balance with agility. He started programming back in the days of Fortran, graduated with a PhD in Computational Physics from UCLan and currently hailing from London, UK.
He blogs on (Medium) [http://m.pardel.net], often (tweets)[https://twitter.com/pardel] and, in his spare time, is bootstrapping (Event.Run) [https://www.event.run].

In today’s world of complexity, competition and constant deadlines, we require novel skills to develop and maintain sustainable health without and within. In this workshop we will look with radical and compassionate honesty at how work affects us on our physical, mental and emotional levels. Underpinned by exciting research into mindfulness, we use meditative and body-mind practices to tackle the roots of feeling disconnected and burnt out. Participants in this workshop will learn specific tools to become more attentive to their personal limits and capacities as professionals.

Bio: Dr. Nico Rönpagel explores the intersections of contemplative practices, embodied compassion and social transformation. He brings 15 years of dedicated yoga, dance and meditation experience and has taught yoga and self-development to diverse communities on four continents. He is passionate about creating novel pathways of wisdom unfolding in unexpected environments in today’s world of possibilities. Equipped with a Ph.D. in art education and a scientific understanding of the benefits of meditation and body-mind interventions, Nico has brought mindfulness to universities, museums, conferences and other professional environments.
