What Others Said

“I was lucky enough to have attended Olaf’s TDD workshop and left feeling like I had a much better understanding of the benefits and power of TDD. I saw how code could be written in a way where bugs are caught as soon as they are created and how solutions are often made more complicated than they need to be.”
–  Aidan Harris, Developer @ Xero

“Loved it! I learned heaps. Great hands-on session. Thank you, Olaf!”
–  Kamal Lamgade, Developer @ N4L

“I think it’s a must-go-to workshop for anyone in Software Engineering. I especially liked how it bridged the gap between TDD theory and practice. I highly recommend Olaf’s ‘Introduction to Test-Driven Development’.”
–  Eugine Song, Developer @ Xero
