Hear from TKP co-founder Lynn Langit on how she and other technical volunteers have taught kids ages 10+ how to program all around the world using Microsoft Small Basic and more. Lynn will demo the teaching method (based on Agile) and share info about the recipes (lessons) and FREE courseware library.
Debug.Assert is great for simple stuff, but if you need to test UI, complicated lists, XML, legacy code, or crazy looking data structures, then you need to use the open source Approval Tests library. You can test these things with lots of reflection code, or you can just use a simple, quick, and easy approval test. Works with C#, VB.NET, Java, PHP and more. Lots of demos in this session too.
