Be a better software developer

So we have all worked at a place where we had to work with this one really awesome developer. Not only did they know the system front to back but they also managed to know everything there is to know about coding it. I am going to share some of my personal inspirations on how to be a better coder. Some code productivity rules I have come up with over the years. We will end with some interview tips for developers.

Test Driven Development: Back to the Basics

Test Driven Development (TDD) is a highly recommended but seldom utilized agile development practice. Primarily originating and associated with Extreme Programming, TDD is often misunderstood and therefore left by the way side when agile teams get going with development. I want to go back to the basics of TDD and show why it should be a practice every team employs. In Design Studio and Senior Design, we manage nearly 40 projects with more than 200 student team members combined. Test Driven Development can greatly impact these students’ careers in software development once they have realized its power and taken advantage of its benefits. Let’s bring it back down to the basics to remind you of this great opportunity.
