Special event in Toronto: How to improve testability with a modular architecture

May 25th 2009 in Toronto: This workshop has been designed to give you a head start in modular architecture practice with abstractions such as the “layer”. You will acquire fundamental knowledge about how to partitions into layers the concerns of the application. We will demonstrate how to apply “top-down” as well as “test-driven” design techniques. You will learn how to correctly design the “velcro”, the visible interface of a module. In the same way, you will learn how to conceive a “fake” implementation, an efficient practice to test a module in an autonomous way. At the end of this workshop you will understand why architects require a unit of modularity that goes beyond object.
