Getting Started with Test Driven Development

Join DSM Web Geeks on April 17th at 6:30pm for an informative and engaging discussion on how to get started with writing testable code, building a culture around testing, and where to go next. Our featured speaker, Chad Levenhagen, is a software engineer and team lead in the Des Moines area.

Test Driven Development (TDD) is a software development process where developers write automated tests before they write the code to implement the desired functionality. By doing this, developers can ensure that their code is reliable and does what it is supposed to do, while also making it easier to maintain and modify over time. In this talk, Chad Levenhagen will discuss the benefits of TDD and share practical tips for getting started with writing testable code.

Whether you’re new to TDD or looking to improve your testing practices, this event is a great opportunity to learn from an experienced software engineer and connect with fellow web geeks in the Des Moines area.
