Description: Jessica Codr (and perhaps a few others) will lead a discussion of katas and lead us through several katas.
Katas are hands on exercises that serve as a great way to get more familiar with programming languages, IDEs, and processes like TDD. They are all about refining our skills as developers through deliberate practice. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops and follow along with the kata exercise. If you don't have a laptop, we will do our best to provide one for you or pair you up with someone else who has a laptop. We will be doing 2-3 katas, including the "prime factors kata" to demonstrate the great power of TDD and a kata using Mockito.
