I'm really glad that David chose to do a live demo. Yes, they're risky, but in this case I felt they really helped demonstrate how katas are done in a very realistic fashion.

Great exercise, and the practical example of TDD was an excellent exercise...

Daniel did a good job of presenting a live coding example to show how coding katas can be used to grow skills with both coding and unit testing. There were no slides per se, just his coding actions and testing, whcih wasn't particularly entertaining, but it was informative and shared value.

Step by step walkthroughs are really useful to me. Nothing beats seeing something in action. Looking forward to doing some PHPUnit katas on my own. Thx!

This was perfect. Seeing not only TDD but katas really cleared up the purpose and the process of the Test Driven Development process. I hadn't really seen what Red, Green, Refactor, Repeat looks like stripped of the abstract description.

Next year, I really need to find a hand-on session with PHPUnit. Could use some time with someone who really gets installation on the Mac.

This way of solving problems is a good approach for TDD beginners.

I found this talk very helpful. I had heard a little bit about unit testing but this was perfect to be able to understand how it works. I appreciate it when speakers demo their code, and David showed us how to run tests and get them to fail, pass, and then how you refactor the code.

A great & practical example of TDD in Kata. Katas were new to me. Worth attending.
