Technical level: Intermediate
Have you ever “fixed” a bug that ended up breaking your application? Have you ever felt scared of making changes to your codebase in fear of breaking things?
This is a 12-hour workshop aimed at developers who want to take their app building skills to the next level! In this workshop, we empower developers to build predictable, robust, and flexible applications.
1. Understanding of functional programming.
2. Introduction to a unidirectional data-flow architecture.
3. Achieving Using TDD to build business logic by writing unit and isolated tests.
4. Introduction to several ideas from clean architecture.
5. Introduction to mockito for testing side-effects.
In this two day workshop, we will enable developers to build high-quality Android apps by helping them build a bunch of apps that will familiarize them with some extreme programming practices, architecture and testing. Developers can go home and apply theses skills in existing or new projects and see a significant improvement in app quality and lower maintenance costs.
