In this introductory course you will get both a full overview of what TDD is, when it can and can't be applied, and what its benefits are for practitioners and organizations. You will also have the opportunity to get hands on with a few fun introductory projects where you can apply what you have learned and experience the benefits of this approach to problem solving yourself.
We recommend that you have some knowledge of the Python programming language. Examples and labs use Python.
Introduction to Test-Driven Development
In this module, we're going to take an introductory look at TDD and define some terms.
Get into the rhythm of TDD by practicing the TDD Mantra and following the TDD workflow's phases. See a day in the life of a test-driven developer and put these into practice.
Existing Types of Testing and the Powerful Assert Statement
In this module, we will review all the existing kind, levels and type of testing. We'll explore where TDD borrows from these and where TDD fits. We'll also introduce the assert statement.
