The Talks

Intro to BDD

Ciaran McNulty @CiaranMcNulty

Behaviour Driven Development techniques help us to ensure that the code we’re writing is solving real-world problems. We will see how a BDD process can help us define a feature, write the code, and then validate the code using tools like Behat.

Effective (remote) Working

Hugh Noble @HughNoble

Most of us will be working from home at the moment and I thought it would be a good idea to share some techniques that can implement to help us to work effectively as a team remotely.
