Environment - Minor TDD exercise

Revision as of 10:47, 24 December 2008 by Dnunn (talk | contribs)

Computers are used occasionally throughout the course.

However, we only need (and want) 1 computer for each 2 students; e.g., if 16 students, then 8 computers. Often, it is possible for students to bring their own laptop.

No network is required.

Power strips and extension cords are generally needed in order to supply power to the computers safely.


If Java group:

  • Latest release version of Java Runtime (JRE)
  • Latest release version of Eclipse

If C++ group:

  • we will do the exercises in Java (see above) (to avoid burning hours on awkward/slow tool setup and use); Java is very similar to C++, and sufficient for the educational goals (of introducing the idea of TDD)

If .NET group:

  • Visual Studio in C#
