With the boom in technology over the past 20 years, it’s no surprise that tech jobs are not only in demand, they pay better. These careers pay well, with a median income that’s 42 percent higher than other jobs. As a tech-driven company, we’re proud to be a part of that, providing employees with competitive pay, great benefits and a flexible schedule.
But it’s time to share the wealth.
In an assessment that’s in no way scientific, and entirely based on the applications we receive from tech talent, the tech world is guy heavy. In an effort to help curb this trend, we’re proud to sponsor an upcoming event that’s being hosted by Women Who Code Cincinnati. The group aims to bring that wealth and stability to more women across the state, a mission we fully support.
The Test-Driven Development Workshop
Coder and web designer Katherine Tornwall will speak at our office in Over the Rhine, Cincinnati about the process of testing your code. Yes, she knows it’s intimidating. She’s fully aware that it can feel repetitive (and redundant, too). Heck, she even fully acknowledges that testing can be pretty boring.
But it doesn’t have to be.
Katherine will talk through how test-driven development (TDD) has become an integral part of her day-to-day, and is a process she can’t imagine working without. She’ll cover how she uses TDD to add a new feature to an Elixir and Phoenix application. If you don’t know the language — no worries. The value is in the process. Katherine will walk developers through how to start with a feature test that runs in your browser, write unit tests for parts of the system, and discuss the hows and whys of the system.
We’ll have food and drinks for everyone (be sure to register). Swing by and learn a thing or three about TDD.
