      Laurie Williams, Associate Professor at North Carolina State
      University will join us for a discussion.

      Topic: Empirical Studies of Test Driven Development

      Test-driven development (TDD) has emerged as a practice of Extreme
      Programming. With TDD, a software engineer cycles minute-by-minute
      between writing automated unit tests and writing code. As TDD is
      considered as much (or more) a design process as a test process, no
      formal design precedes these cycles. This talk will provide an
      overview of TDD. The results of several empirical studies of the use
      of TDD by practitioners will be reviewed, in particular studies
      conducted at Microsoft and IBM.

      Dr. Laurie Williams is an Associate Professor at North Carolina State
      University. She received her undergraduate degree in Industrial
      Engineering from Lehigh University. She also received an MBA from
      Duke University and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University
      of Utah. Prior to returning to academia to obtain her Ph.D., she
      worked in industry, for IBM, for nine years. Dr. Williams is the lead
      author of Pair Programming Illuminated and a co-editor of Extreme
      Programming Perspectives. Dr. Williams has done several empirical
      studies on Extreme Programming and its development practices, pair
      programming and test-driven development.

      Enticements: We will give away Agile Retrospectives by Derby & Larsen
      as door prize (from O'Reilly and the Pragmatic Bookshelf). And free
      pizza, as usual.

      Location: UNCC
      Specifically Room 101 of Cameron Applied Research Center

      Pizza & networking at 6pm. The discussion starts 6:30pm.
