Your team can be greater than the sum of its parts

Our workshops focus on modern software development techniques from the agile, lean, and software craftsmanship communities. Learning these practices and techniques allow your team to deliver sooner, with higher quality and in a sustainable way.

Workshop Topics Include

Clean code

It’s important to have code that works. But it’s also important to have code that can respond to future changes. We teach techniques like refactoring and design patterns to build clean code that not only works today, but can be understood and modified tomorrow.

TDD

Test Driven Development (TDD) allows you to code with confidence. By following the simple cycle of writing a small failing test and then writing just enough code to pass that test, you know when the code is correct and can be used effectively by other code.

Refactoring

Refactoring techniques change the code without changing the behavior of the code. They allow you to clean up and prepare code for new features. We teach a wide range of refactorings that accelerate development.

Simple design

Designing for the future requires guessing about the future. We’ll help you avoid the costs of speculation and instead focus on designing systems that are simple and effective using the 4 Rules of Simple Design.

Continuous delivery

Code is not done until it’s delivered and producing value. We will give you the skills to build a continuous delivery pipeline for your project so that you can release with confidence. This will allow all involved to continuously see updates in a test environment so that you can get feedback early.

Pair Programming

Fast feedback leads to better code. Instead of waiting for a code review, we’ll help you learn how to effectively pair programming so that the best of both pair’s work is getting into the code base.

Experiential workshops

We facilitate hands-on, experiential workshops on agile and lean technical topics. Unlock the potential of your software team by learning how to keep your code clean, simple and maintainable and how to deliver sooner using incremental and iterative practices.

We build quality software

Need custom software for your business? Worried that you’ll spend time defining the software only to realize that what was built doesn’t really give you the outcomes you were hoping for?

Our agile, iterative approach allows us to not just build software right, but build the right software.  We use collaborative techniques to build software that meets your needs.

Maps, Hashes, Dictionaries Revealed

Often in programming it’s useful to be able to access one piece of information based on other piece of information. For example, if you wanted to be able to populate city and state given a zip code, you’d want to be able to provide the zip code and lookup that city...

Kind names

One of the most difficult problems in programming is naming things.  Things such as variables, classes, methods, functions... everything needs a name and you, as the coder are responsible for providing it. The reason this is tricky is that you are creating the name...
