[ANN] The Coding Dojo Handbook
2013-05-20 07:19:17 GMT
I've been thinking for some time about how to get average software developers in ordinary companies to learn practices like Test Driven Development, and I've been experimenting with the Coding Dojo format for teaching and learning. I've just published an ebook, "The Coding Dojo Handbook" which aims to be a helping hand along the way. My thought is that a team lead or enterprising team member could organize Coding Dojo meetings with their colleagues. This would provide a space for the whole team to discuss problems and issues around TDD, and to practice some of the basic skills involved. And it's fun!
In the book I have lots of practical advice, collaborative game suggestions, funny stories about dojos, and a catalogue of Kata exercises to draw on. I think it should be a useful resource to anyone starting a new dojo, or to get new ideas for an existing one. If you're in either of those positions, I hope you'll consider getting a copy.
If you've already read the book, please note I now consider it "finished", and have probably substantially updated it since you last looked at it. In any case I hope you'll check the latest version, and consider posting a review of it in your blog.
