Test-Driven Development Workshop with Java

Test-Driven Development (TDD) is a design engineering process that relies on a very short development cycle. A TDD approach to software development requires a thorough review of the requirements or design before any functional code is written. The development process is started by writing the test case, then the code to pass the test and then refactoring until completion. 

Benefits of a TDD approach to software engineering include: 

  • Faster feedback
  • Higher Acceptance
  • Avoids scope creep and over engineering
  • Customer centric and iterative
  • Leads to modular, flexible, maintainable code 

This three-day course is a deep dive in to TDD that incorporates the steps that are necessary for effective implementation. You will cover unit tests, user stories, design, refactoring, frameworks, and how to apply them to existing solutions. In addition, this course explores the implications of code dependencies, fluid requirements, and early detection of issues. This is an interactive class with hands-on labs. To get the most out of this course, you are encouraged to fully participate. This course demonstrates the skills developers and teams need for building quality applications sustainably, with quality, for the life of the code base. 

Note: A PC or Mac is required for this class to access remote labs.
