Software Tool Installs Before the Workshop

  • install and connect Fitnesse (an ATDD tool) to your system under development, so that we can call upon public APIs of your system, via a Fitnesse Fixture.
  • complete full "connect the dots" *before* the workshop, proving that Fitnesse is connected and can make calls
  • CHECK IDE CHOICE WITH COACH, and then install the chosen IDE with built-in refactoring
  • install and check an xUnit TDD tool, such as JUnit (if not already integrated with the IDE)

Computer Setup
