This training workshop is aimed at developers working in any modern programming language with at least one year's experience programming in their chosen language. It's often attended by technical leaders who wish to keep their code craft skills up-to-date, too.
You will need a suitable computer with your favourite editor/IDE installed. On-site courses will require a room large enough to comfortably accomodate all participants, good, reliable Internet access (Wi-Fi), and a data projector or suitably large TV (with HDMI input) that will allow participants to read code from the back of the room. You will find a pen and paper handy.
Online training is available whereever you are, pretty much. (There are a few countries it's sadly not possible to do business with, of course.) Onsite training is available across the UK, Europe and many other regions. Ask us.
9/10 times, the trainer will be Codemanship founder and course author Jason Gorman. Jason has 38 years' programming experience and three decades of professional experience as a developer, technical lead and software architect. He's run hundreds of code craft training workshops over the last 20 years, and is a very experienced teacher and mentor. If, for any reason, Jason isn't available for your workshop, we'll inform you well in advance and offer you a trainer of similar industry seniority.
Yes. You will most definitely be writing code in this workshop. Business analysts, testers, project managers etc may find it useful to sit in and observe -at no charge - if they want to gain an understanding of Test-Driven Development and how it fits into the overall software development cycle, but this is 100% a hands-on workshop.
We often run this workshop for groups working in multiple programming languages. It's absolutely fine.
