Test-Driven Development is a way of programming, which focuses on starting the development process by revealing our intentions. By defining tests, which are examples of behaviour that our code is supposed to realise, we create a problem domain model in our minds, drive and develop the design of the code, and finally provide ourselves with tools for automatic verification of code correctness. This has enormous positive influence on our work: we get safer and more certain coding, less often use of a debugger, less defects, better design and more readable code. This way of coding is completely different to what we normally know, and much more pleasant.
It’s a mixed workshop-presentation model. Not only will you get the theory of driving development by tests, but more importantly you’ll be able to work that way guided by a person who programs like this on a daily basis and leads teams that develop software this way. Expected results of participation in the training:
- You’ll understand techniques for creating high-quality code
- You’ll learn What different test types mean
- You’ll see and practice the TDD cycle, will learn how to design your code to make it testable and readable
- I’ll show you some libraries that enable testing on different levels
And all of this you’ll learn in the most effective way – by practicing TDD during a series of workshops. This will let you finish the training with the feel and knowledge of what the TDD is and how to apply it in your daily work.
