Test driven development has been around for more than a decade. It is considered best practice and enhances code quality significantly. But why so few development teams use it then? Finding your way to start practicing TDD is the hardest part.

And once you have got it, it is equally hard to get other team mates to follow you. It almost feels more natural to write all code first and then write necessary automated tests. But there might be a way to change it! All you need is a partner, a single computer and new functionality to build. This hands on session shows how TDD can be easy and fun by combining it with pair programming. As if you were playing table tennis, in ping pong TDD you create a test for your partner to pass, and then he creates one for you. Join this session to see how it works in practice.
