Test Driven Development in Java training course (code: TDDJAVA)

Apply TDD To Java Deveelopment - Improve Agility & Predictability Of Your Development Lifecycle



TRAINING COURSE OVERVIEW

 

Why come to JBI Training for a TDD/Java course?

Client feedback shows that delegates on our courses will best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. Where possible, we  run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of relevant topics takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.

To facilitate this type of event, a subject matter expert leads the training, hands-on labs and discussions to ensure course topics are covered in a meaningful, relevant and timely manner. Delegates may be able to bring their own practical requirements and work to the course if the subjects and course topics are suitable.  

The course is intended as a practical course: the best way to appreciate how test-driven development works and what it feels like is to do it in practice, making sense of the principles it embodies. In this form the course is based on lecture material, demonstration, discussion and hands-on labs. However, the course can also be run as a seminar without hands-on labs, which puts more emphasis on understanding the principles through the demonstrations.
