Free Workshop: Test-Driven Development in C++, Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Have you heard about that new thing the kids are doing called test-driven development and wondered what it’s all about? Is it about testing? Is it about design? Is it good or is it bad?

Come join me for an evening workshop where I will show you what it’s all about and you’ll have a chance to try it out for yourself on a problem large enough to be interesting, but small enough that you can make progress on it during the workshop. The workshop will use the Boost.Test and Turtle libraries.

Thanks to Fusion-io for the meeting facilities, WiFi access, food (pizza from The Pie) and refreshments.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP to reserve your space.

Date Wednesday, April 30, 2014
Time 6 PM – 9 PM
Location Fusion-io (Google maps)
2855 E. Cottonwood Parkway
Suite 100
Salt Lake City, UT 84121

To participate in this workshop, you should come prepared with a computer that has:

  • A C++ compiler
  • Download and install Boost; version 1.55 is the latest but almost any recent version will work (if you download from source, you may want to build the static variant of the unit test framework for faster builds during the workshop.)
  • Download and install Turtle library. Turtle is a header only library, so installing simply means unpacking the archive file.

If you prepare your computer beforehand, the workshop will be much more useful to you as you won’t get behind while you configure your environment.
