Next Meeting of the XP Club

The May 10th meeting will feature a talk by guest speaker Clarke Ching.

Talk: How to sell TDD to your colleagues and bosses.
Clarke uses excel - a tool on most peoples desktops and one that managers, in particular, don't find intimidating - to demonstrate Test Driven Development. Ron Jeffries, the XP guru, said he loved this approach. The demo has been used in a number of companies and universities to demonstrate the concepts of TDD, without freaking people out. It's a great conversation starter around the importance of TDD, good design, pairing and refactoring. Clarke has written up the session for his book and will share the instructions so that you can use it with your colleagues and bosses.
