...Learn TDD with Codemanship

Intensive Refactoring Workshop, London, Oct 20th

After the success of Saturday's intensive and budget-friendly TDD training workshop, I've decided to organise a follow-up to help folk get to grips with the extremely important discipline of refactoring.

Codemanship's intensive refactoring workshop will be on Saturday Oct 20th in central London, with an unbeatable early bird price of just £99.

Now, I know refactoring isn't considered as sexy as TDD or SOLID, and you may be thinking "do I need this?" Trust me. You do. TDD isn't sustainable without it, and what's the point in knowing your OO design needs fixing if you don't have the skills to fix it?

Refactoring is the "secret sauce" of Agile Software Development. Without strong refactoring muscles, your code quickly becomes complicated, hard to read and difficult to change.

I can immediately spot a good developer by their nose for design problems and the maturity of their refactoring skills. Most don't have any worth speaking of.

If you're only looking to impress potential employers, then this might not be the course for you. But if you want to be a better software developer, it's the most important course we do.
