Move Fast and Break Nothing: An Intro to Object Oriented Programming workshop

Software developers are simply engineers who work in abstract spaces. We don’t build robots; rather, we build representations of robots. In this workshop, attendees will have a chance to apply principles of object oriented programming to the classic Mars Rover Kata. We will discover how careful object oriented design increases velocity of coding and confidence in the code we write. Additionally, we will work through some of the patterns that make the implementation of the Mars Rover solution easy to understand. Writing code is fun! Let’s create some object oriented code from procedural skeletons in a way that makes writing code delightful and super fast.
