About the Test Driven Databases Initiative

The Test Driven Databases initiative is a project from Curiously Correct. The goal is to create a community of database developers who improve the design and quality of their applications. This is done through public and private classes in database test driven development, and through hands-on coaching and mentoring.

 

About Dennis Lloyd

Dennis is a software development coach at Curiously Correct. He has broad experience in the software development life-cycle with specialized focus on Agile practices and database technologies. He has successfully assisted development groups through learning key practices including test driven development, continuous integration and deployment, iteration planning, retrospectives, pair programming and collective code ownership. His goal is to help development teams deliver value to their customers by focusing on improving quality and development work-flow.

When he is not coaching or developing software, Dennis can be found at a milonga, an Argentine Tango dance party. He recently spent six months on sabbatical in Buenos Aires indulging in this passion. He has observed that some of the techniques used to teach tango can be applied to teaching software development.
