Expo Hall (Table B)

Whether the testing goat is steering you right or wrong, you’ll want to join Harry for an informal discussion of testing and TDD, including:

  • How to get started with testing and how to get the most value from it
  • The relative merits of pure isolated unit tests, integrated tests and functional tests
  • How to adapt your approach for different types of project.

After an idyllic childhood spent playing with BASIC on French 8-bit computers like the Thomson T-07 whose keys go “boop” when you press them, Harry spent a few years being deeply unhappy as a management consultant. Soon he rediscovered his true geek nature, and was lucky enough to fall in with a bunch of XP fanatics, working on the pioneering but sadly defunct Resolver One spreadsheet. He now works at PythonAnywhere LLP, and spreads the gospel of TDD world-wide at talks, workshops and conferences, with all the passion and enthusiasm of a recent convert.
