Baby Steps—a Practical Introduction into Test-Driven Development

On the 26th of November the Iteratec GmbH was hosting a coding dojo at the University of Passau, entitled "Baby Steps - a very practical introduction into testdriven development". Dojo is japanese and literally translates to "place of the way", but more frequently is used as the training area in martial arts. For the participants this converted into test-driven pair-programming and always implementing the smallest "baby-steps" of code possible for a certain usecase. The usecase was playfully adjusted during the sessions by the "client". This way there were always new problems and beginners as well as programming experts could learn something new from it. Afterwards the attendees left with new experiences and exchanged their programming habits over diner and were able to gather further insights into the work of Iteratec.
