Test-driven development (TDD) is an essential programmer skill that allows developers to sustain a high-quality code base. Agile shops everywhere are learning the value of TDD in a fast-paced iterative development environment. But TDD isn't limited to agile shops--you'll find many benefits to using TDD in any environment.
In our most popular course, you'll obtain a solid foundation for doing test-driven development (TDD). You'll also learn the value of continual refactoring, a practice core to TDD and essential to sustaining your investment in your software. Lecture is brief, as we instead emphasize lots of hands-on coding exercises and demonstrations. You'll learn why we consider TDD a design technique, and how to increase the value of the tests you build.
We are usually able to provide exercises using your unit testing tool of choice, whether it be JUnit 3.x, JUnit 4.x, TestNG, RSpec, Test::Unit, CppUnit, CppUnit Lite, Tut, CppUTest, NUnit, or something else.
