Two Part Webinar Series: Why hasn't TDD taken over the world yet?

Test-driven development (TDD) is a development technique where you must first write a test that fails before you write new functional code. It relies on the repetition of a very short development cycle: requirements are turned into very specific test cases, then the code is improved so that the tests pass.

TDD, rediscovered by agile pioneer Kent Beck in the late 1990’s, has been a core practice of the best agile teams for decades. Those who’ve experienced it, swear by it, and most say they would never go back to developing code any other way.

Sounds great, right? Then why hasn’t TDD taken over the world yet? The team at Cucumber has invited some friends to discuss.

Join us for a 2-part panel discussion as we work out how to avoid common obstacles, pitfalls, and generally some best practices around employing TDD for your organization.

Session 1: When does TDD fail and why? (Tuesday, July 28th)


Session 2: How can we get more people able to enjoy TDD? (Thursday, July 30th)


Register for any session, and we’ll automatically register you for both to make it easier to participate.
