TDD and the Terminator – An introduction to Test Driven Development – Webinar Recording
The recording of our August 20 webinar, TDD and the Terminator – An introduction to Test Driven Development, with Layla Porter, is now available. Subscribe to our community newsletter to receive notifications about future webinars.
Getting started with Test Driven Development (TDD) can be very challenging. It requires a different mindset and approach to writing and developing code. However, once in that mindset, it is very difficult not to write tests first.
But why bother writing tests first?
In this session, we will go through the reasons for writing tests before coding, look at architecture and design principles, such as SOLID and see how it all comes together to create a more testable and maintainable application.
I will show you how to get started writing tests first with practical examples on how to reprogram a T800 series Terminator so you can start using TDD in your own applications (or killer robots from the future).
Hasta La Vista badly-written code!
