TDD - It's About More Than Just the Tests

Talk at OpenWest Conference 2018 (English - US)

Rating: 0 of 5

Test driven development is all the rage. But what is test driven development? It just means that you write your tests before your code, right? Writing the tests first is part of test driven development, but only one part. And some would argue not the most important part.

In this session we’ll talk about what test driven development (TDD) actually is and how it differs from other types of testing. We’ll go over the basic mechanics of TDD. Then we’ll write some code using TDD, both to show these mechanics and to illustrate how using TDD can not only add tests but result in better code than we might otherwise end up with.

If you’ve never done TDD before or have done a little and would like to learn more, this session is for you.
