You've heard of Test Driven Development and you've probably attended a talk on it. But when you've gone back and tried to do it, you get stuckā€¦ What was the process? Where do I start? How do I test this thing with that thing? No more. Let's "test drive" TDD through a live demo to see TDD in action.

Richard Teachout

We hate Project Management Frameworks.. but needed one. So we "use" the things that worked for us.. and made it trackable and efficient. We hate meetings, and consider stand-ups meetings.. so we do it a bit differently. We consider ourselves Agile-Scrum'ish.. What does that mean.... come see!
