FCC Seattle Presents: Let’s try test-driven development

November 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Whether you’re new to test-driven development, automated testing, or development as a whole, come join us on Thursday, November 21st from 6-9pm at thinkspace to try out test-driven development.

Test-driven development is a popular development philosophy that has you write tests before you even start writing code. Many professional developers swear by it. At the very least, it’s an interesting approach. You never know when it might come up in an interview!

To kick off our November event, we’ll work through a simple application together in Javascript, writing it using the test-driven development philosophy. After that, stick around because you’ll have a chance to pull out your own projects and make progress on them with help from our mentors.

You’ll meet other awesome people too, who, like you, are learning to become developers. Many of our members are still learning. Some are already looking for work. Others have found awesome jobs and completed their transition. Our members have great stories to share from all over the spectrum. Come out and talk to someone you don’t know. It’s amazing what you can learn!

Oh yeah. There’s also free pizza. 🍕 You can’t go wrong with that!

Come out and experiment with us. 🧪 Hope to see you at the event!
