About the LEGO® technical practices exercises

Most of these exercises have been jointly developed by Mike Bowler of Gargoyle Software and Bryan Beecham of Iceberg Ideas. The collaboration exercise was heavily influenced by Ellen Grove of Agile Partnership.

All of these are used by Mike and Bryan in classes they teach and conference sessions they've given around the world. Bryan created the original TDD and refactoring exercises and then together they've created even more.

You are welcome to use these exercises. All we ask is:

  • You give us credit as the creators. Links to our sites or our twitter handles would be great (@mike_bowler, @BillyGarnet and @eegrove)
  • Let us know how these exercises worked for you. If you've made changes then we'd love to hear what you did and how they worked.
