TEST DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT– GTOTD – 2-3 days depending on previous experience and scope.

Tools, patterns and techniques for writing well-designed and testable code

Test-driven development is one of the key enablers for agile development, that allows us to develop stable and refactorable code, whose intent is clear and whose design can evolve incrementally. TDD allows us to capture and validate the rules governing the behaviour of our code.

And… it’s also fun! There’s a bunch of interesting tools available to assist us in developing robust tests, in identifying which tests to write, to help us compose tests and to automatically run our tests.

The course is taught through presentation, demos, plenty of hands-on labs and directed discussions.

DATABASE DESIGN– GTDW7 – 2 days

The workshop provides a full discussion of and experience with database design. Three types of trade-offs to the data will be applied – technology, safe and aggressive tradeoffs. Safe compromises are trade-offs that will optimize the data model without compromising integrity or redundancy. An example of a safe trade-off is to partition a table. Aggressive compromises will optimize the data but may comprise data integrity. An example of this is to store redundant data. Technology trade-offs use overhead features of the DBMS, such as indices. Indices can improve query performance but can compromise maintenance performance. You will learn how to apply safe, aggressive and technology trade-offs for optimizing the data.
