Practicing to Be Perfect and an Introduction to Slice Testing, October 10 at 5:30 p.m.

Deliberate practice is critical for honing any craft — including software development. This event will focus on the benefits of practicing writing code, for both beginners and experienced developers alike, and how slice testing can play a part in that without disrupting daily performance.
