Can we ship a working product from the first hour to the last hour? Are we really that agile? Can we run our agile practices to the max?

In this workshop, we are going to explore agile practices such as TDD and Pair Programming. We will work in small teams and create an application, that is shippable from the very first minute. We will use Continuous Integration to ensure the quality of our product. The application will be continuously deployed in the cloud and will be usable by everybody.

The application space is JavaScript, node.js and Neo4j. The Continuous Integration infrastructure will be set up beforehand to allow each team to focus on building the application itself. The only thing we ask, is that you contribute working code.

Prerequesites: Computer Science basics (CS 101) are sufficient for this session. Some JavaScript knowledge is helpful, but not necessary. The infrastructure is provided in the form of VirtualBox images, so please ensure that you have the latest version of VirtualBox on your machine.MICHAEL LEX
