Walking step - Software Design Training

WALKING

Technical Skills

Teams begin to apply the basics of technical communication and collaborative live coding.

They will master the development environment, using the tests as guidance. The productivity increases because coding tools perform "automagically" most of the heavy work.

We follow the original Test-Driven Development approach. The group will learn the technique by practicing with our teachers.

Teams speed up development, becoming experts in finding test cases and test scenarios.

Alcor Academy's testimonial David Molinero

Brilliant TDD lessons with real experts on the topic. And we had great fun doing mob programming!

Running step - Software Design Training

RUNNING

Product & Delivery

Teams begin to recognize design anomalies in code and perform refactoring to remove them. That means their code will be always easy to work with.

Applying the principles for a loosely coupled architecture, enables teams to create a modular design. That means achieving the goal of continuous delivery becomes technically possible.

When the whole team has knowledge about good design, features can be developed and shipped quickly without defects.

People & Culture

User-centric techniques promote automation and collaboration with the business.

Business and development teams working together increases the impact of new features.

Automating the execution of specifications cuts an enormous amount of “digital bureaucracy”.

This is how features “fly” from ideation to production!

THE REASONS

for Success

Knowledge retained after training

MOB PROGRAMMING Live

Alcor Academy's testimonial Luca Zangger

The course has a good theory - practice balance. It's so much more memorable when you learn by doing it! Furthermore within the mob you can see how others approach problems and solutions evolve collaboratively.

Modules Sequence
We crafted the modules to build the knowledge following a well-defined path of topics. Hence, we recommend to respect the 'Walking', 'Running' and 'Flying' ordering.
Notes
This is a very hands-on course where the attendees will write code in mob programming. The students will use the trainer's machine with a live shared IDE for the chosen technology. Given the amount of information delivered, we suggest to schedule no more than 2 lessons per week. The attendees need some time to practice and internalize the content between the sessions.
