TDD for iOS Workshop with Jon Reid

Test-Driven Development (TDD) is a core practice of Technical Agility. Yet few companies practice it (and wonder why they’re having trouble with agility). Fewer still apply it to Apple platforms.

Like riding a bicycle, TDD isn’t something you can learn from just reading a book. In this workshop, we learn by doing! If you’re a programmer with basic familiarity of iOS development, you’re ready.

Your trainer will be Jon Reid, author of iOS Unit Testing by Example: XCTest Tips and Techniques Using Swift. Jon has been practicing TDD on Apple platforms for 18 years.
