At Adaption we develop systems that meet and exceed the highest customer expectations, and we offer training, mentoring and coaching services that help your team learn to do the same. Our specialty is Test-driven Development (TDD), a core XP programming practice that is useful independently of XP.
Adaption offers on-site and off-site training courses in TDD. These intensive, hands-on courses are designed to help programmers learn this revolutionary new approach to programming.

3-Day Basic TDD Course (October 7-8 & December 2-4)
In the Basic 3-day course programmers learn the basics quickly but thoroughly. They spend every minute possible working through carefully-designed sample problems. They learn how to use the xUnit family of automated unit test tools, and how to use the refactoring tools built into a contemporary IDE. They learn to write good tests, organize them clearly, work in tiny increments of design/test/code, and spot refactoring opportunities. Afterwards, they should be ready to begin TDD work on pilot projects at their current jobs.
5-Day TDD Course (November 3-7)
The 5-day course, designed for programmers already familiar with design patterns, refactoring, and the general precepts of XP, is a combination of the Basic and Advanced 3-day courses. It gives students a thorough grounding in TDD and refactoring in a single immersive week.
3-Day Advanced TDD Course
The Advanced 3-day course is designed for graduates of the basic course. It teaches how to test tricky technologies and resources, using such tools and techniques as Mock Objects and GUI testing frameworks.
