Great talk, we try to apply this stuff at work every day. Would like so see more about the benefits of TDD. Thanks!

This was, without a doubt, one of the best technical talks I have ever seen. Adam live-coded nearly the entire time. I know, normally that sentence would strike fear into my heart-- but Adam has clearly prepared so thoroughly, there was never a moment that came even close to the kind of horror stories you hear from live-coding talks. And yet, the code felt very natural and not contrived at all. As a result, it was a very useful and interesting look into how an experienced programmer approaches writing a real solution, from scratch. We've all heard the principles of good design and seen an example or two, but it doesn't compare to what you can learn from 45 minutes of watching a good dev make decisions.

Loved the live coding example of simplifying the overcomplicated and great examples of abstracting your classes rather than overloading with complexity

Great talk by Adam. Amazing live demonstration on how to keep your code clean, simple and organized. Loved it.

Great talk. Not what I expected. This talk turned out to be the best TDD & Refactoring talk that I've seen. Just watching the real time demo you can really grasp the usefulness of TDD and how it can speed up your development and make you confident of the outcomes of your code.

Everyone should attend this talk at least once, some people three times.

Very good

The talk was an amazing reinforcement of the benefits to TDD.

I've this talk before and it was still amazing the second time. Very well rehearsed, and an extremely enlightening example of how TDD greatly increases developer performance. I'd make everyone watch this if I could.

Great demonstration of how TDD can help you. Superb example of clean an and simple design with a clear though process. Thank you!

I would recommend this course to everyone wanting to become a better developer. If you come into this course with an existing understanding of frameworks and OOP, you will love this course even more. Glad I attended this course. He even used Laravel, which is my current framework of choice.

Great talk one of the best of the conference
