Don't just get your application done. Get it done right.
In traditional software development, the standard of writing code before testing can make it difficult and costly to fix problems and delay the deployment process.
Test-driven development (TDD), or “test-first” programming, is an iterative software development process that encourages simple designs and short development cycles to improve code quality and increase productivity.
Test, build, test, build. Repeat as necessary.
With TDD, the development process begins with an automated unit test that must be passed using the minimum amount of code and rules to meet the requirement.
Each time a new feature is added, it is tested this way to make sure the new code meets the specifications. This framework allows developers and stakeholders to determine early if their application does what it needs to, and also to quickly and efficiently make improvements.
Test-driven development allows you to:
- Understand all requirements and specifications.
- Ensure code effectiveness.
- Avoid omitting features.
- Maintain control from start to finish.
