DroidCon London: Android Kata Workshop

I’m giving an Android Kata workshop at DroidCon London today!

Materials

If you enjoyed this workshop, make sure to get a video copy. If you’re looking for more of a challenge, check out my Android Activity Book which leads you through building a calculator with TDD.

If you want to learn more about me and/or my approach to testing, check out my appearance on the Fragmented podcast and/or Android Dialogs!

Android Kata Workshop

I was inspired by my recent appearance on the Fragment podcast to get recording! I can’t wait to share what we talked about on the show, but in the meantime …

An idea I’ve been kicking around for a while was show Android TDD in action.  The Android Activity Book gives a thorough introduction, but since it’s a book, it’s harder to get an immediate feel for TDD.

To make it more accessible, I created an Android Kata so that people could practice TDD on a small throw away app. I gave this as a workshop to my coworkers and they really loved working through the example project. I turned it into a downloadable workshop so that you can walk through it too.

Get your copy today! I’d love to hear your feedback.
