October Meeting: Introduction to Test-Driven Development‏

Join us Tuesday, October 22, at 6:00 PM in the Mt. Kilimanjaro/Mt. Everest rooms of the Charlotte Microsoft Campus. For this month’s talk we’ll explore Test-Driven Development. We’ll look at what many of us are doing now and how TDD changes our workflow. We will discuss what TDD is and what is isn’t. After a review of the open source tools that support TDD in VS 2012, we will work through an actual demonstration of the technique. Once you’ve seen the demo and reviewed the key points, we will open up for discussion of how to make TDD work for us.

The meeting presenter is Bill Jones Jr., MVP.
