Workshop Test Commit Revert and Limbo

TL;DR 3 day remote workshop (9am-5pm CEST) about Test Commit Revert and Limbo, 4th to 6th of October 2021.

I am excited to announce a public, three-day online workshop about Test Commit Revert and Limbo on 4th to 6th of October 2021. The workshop is a cooperation with Software Therapist Johannes Link.

Test Commit Revert (TCR) is an experimental software development technique made up by Kent Beck in 2018. It keeps the tests green all the time, the broken code is reverted (removed). This is a form of Test Driven Development that encourages even smaller increments. Small, working pieces of code are the foundation of Continuous Integration.

Target Audience
People who want to experience Kent Beck's latest brainchild.

You will learn
  • about the newest invention of Kent Beck.
  • how to break coding problems down into smaller and smaller increments.
  • how small, safe working steps guarantee steady progress, even for hard problems.
  • how to use failing tests as a guide when exploring legacy code.
  • how to take team collaboration to the next level.
TCR, Test Driven Development, small increments, Continuous Integration.

Mode of the workshop
The workshop will be online. You need to have access to tools like BlueJeans (video conferencing), Miro (online boards) and GitHub (code sharing). You also need an installed recent version of your Java or C# IDE (like IntelliJ or Visual Studio). The exercises are available for Java and C#. To check if another programming language is possible - and probably it is - please contact me. During the workshop you will listen to (short) presentations, work through exercises in groups, pairs and alone and have plenty of time to ask questions and discuss approaches.

Workshop time is 9am to 5pm CEST. Your attendance is required from 9am to 3pm CEST. After the online session you will have time for more practice and reflection at your leisure. The workshop will take place on 3 consecutive days, 4th to 6th of October 2021.

  • There will be a maximum of 12 participants, guided by two trainers (Johannes Link and Peter Kofler).
  • The minimum number of participants is 6.
  • Workshop fee is EUR 1500.- plus VAT (20%).
  • Register by sending an .
