I'm pleased to announce that the Scottish ColdFusion User Group will be holding a very special online meeting on the evening of Thursday 8th May. We will have not one, but two very distinguished speakers.
Ben Nadel and Peter Bell will be joining us in a Adobe Connect meeting from New York City to talk to us and demonstrate Pair Programming Using TDD.
Ever wondered what Pair Programming is like? Ever been interested in
how Test Driven Development really works? In this special connect
session, Ben Nadel (http://www.bennadel.com) and Peter Bell
(http://www.pbell.com) will be pair programming using a Test Driven
Development process - live from NYC and without a safety net! :->
They'll start with a simple set of requirements for an object and using MX Unit will use a Test Driven Development approach to come up with a working design. The approach/naming will be strongly influenced by Behavior Driven Design - one of the most interesting recent developments in developer testing.
The session will start with a five minute introduction to the ideas behind pairing, TDD and BDD and the rest of the time will be a spontaneous pairing session to give a sense of how pairing and TDD really work in practice.
The meeting will be held on Thursday 8th May 2008 at 8PM BST. For international time take a look at this time and date link : http://snipurl.com/scfugmeetingtime

Everyone is welcome! The connect meeting room will open 15 minutes before the meeting.
I'm very excited about this meeting and I look forward to seeing you all there.
