ICAgile accredited course

Learn how to use agile programming practices to create high-quality systems.

During our Agile Programming Techniques course, you will gain hands-on experience and practice with tools and techniques for designing and implementing systems. You will apply specifications written in the form of user examples and unit tests to drive development with test-driven development (TDD), behaviour-driven development (BDD) and acceptance test-driven development (ATDD). This course is ideal for developers and technical testers wanting a better understanding along with the opportunity to practically apply agile tools and techniques.  This course is about quality – in particular, what can developers do to make sure that we are building the right system, and that we are building it the right way.
