Clean Code That Works

Clean Code that works is the training we built for the developers that want to learn the XPeppers's way of writing code. Software development is a learning process!

What you will learn

During our three days course we will cover all the different aspects that can make your code really work!  

Our trainers will teach you how Refactoring and Simple Design improve the overall quality of your codebase with a resulting software that proves to be clearer and more expressive. You will also see how a good design can emerge from scratch by applying Test-Driven Development (TDD).

The format is both theoretical and practical, we strongly encourage you to get involved with your keyboard working alongside with other attendees.
