TDD your Microservice from Git to Kubernetes
This workshop presents the foundations of Test-Driven Development (TDD) with a hands-on approach and guides the participants through the development of a WebApi.
In addition to TDD some other techniques like Continuous Integration, Tracer Bullet and Hexagonal Architecture will be explained and used.
Participants will work with netCore, Git, Docker and Kubernetes. Participants are required to be familiar with netCore and Git but no Docker/Kubernetes knowledge is required. Beyond the software installed on their machines, participants will use GitHub and Azure services (no subscription required).
The workshop is mainly based on the ideas of two books: Growing Object-Oriented Software Guided By Test (by Freeman & Pryce) and Continuous Delivery (by Humble & Farley).
Audience: C# (netCore) developers with no real-world experience applying TDD in microservices scenarios
