Hands On Guidance To Creating Great Test Driven Development Practice Test Driven Development TDD Practice Helps Developers Recognize A Well Designed Application, And Encourages Writing A Test Before Writing The Functionality That Needs To Be Implemented This Hands On Guide Provides Invaluable Insight For Creating Successful Test Driven Development Processes With Source Code And Examples Featured In Both C And, The Book Walks You Through The TDD Methodology And Shows How It Is Applied To A Real World Application You Ll Witness The Application Built From Scratch And Details Each Step That Is Involved In The Development, As Well As Any Problems That Were Encountered And The Solutions That Were AppliedClarifies The Motivation Behind Test Driven Development TDD , What It Is, And How It Works Reviews The Various Steps Involved In Developing An Application And The Testing That Is Involved Prior To Implementing The Functionality Discusses Unit Testing And Refactoring Professional Test Driven Development With Cshows You How To Create Great TDD Processes Right Away very comprehensive coverage of what developing c code test driven is If you need one book that covers unit, functional and even give you a quick glace at UI test this is the one for you Definitely recommend this one I was curious about this book, as I have already read other ones such as Test Driven Development By Example, Test Driven Development A Practical Guide, Test Driven Practical TDD and Acceptance TDD for Java Developers or Growing Object Oriented Software, Guided by Tests.So, this books is indeed about how TDD helps produce maintainable code This book is as its title says focused on Microsoft.Net platform and the associated tools It recalls important concepts such as the SOLID principles, how to mock dependencies, etc before to dive into.Net specific examples that cover WPF, WCF, etc.What I like most is that it illustrates TDD in the context of Agile development, explaining how to break down a user story into features, and in turn into tests. I m not sure what to think about the inclusion of NBehaveit either should have been covered , or left out entirely, IMO I guess I m intrigued enough to look into it someAs with any book that covers TDD, there s quite an emphasis put on various frameworks mocking, dependency injection, etc It can be a lot to try and absorb if you re tentatively poking your toes in the TDD waters Anyway, this was pretty well written Personally, I liked the integration of unit testing with the overall sample project you build in the book Pro ASP.NET MVC 3 Framework better That sort of put everything in a really good, practical context which is a bit lacking in this book. Still reading Very interesting. This book is a must read for any C programmer looking to start testing Hadto share but I recommend you just read the book. I thought that the book would give meinsights on how to use Test Driven Development But it wasof a cursory overview of TDD. This is a decent book to convince yourself that writing tests before code is a good thing It is very readable.For each class of tool used, the author picks one for use in the examples The result is examples that relate to each other, allowing a reader to reinforce the concepts each time There is a chapter which summarizes some of the different other tools which exist out there so you know that they exist More tools will come out, tools will evolve, techniques invented etc Hence this book can be used to jumpstart one s foray into TDD or BDD see next paragraph , but cannot possibly be a comprehensive reference.The word testing is in TDD, hence I can understand advocating the use of testing frameworks, IoC containers and mocking frameworks However, this book does much of the tests in a BDD style I feel that the book s title will be better named something like Writing Tests before Code A positive example would be the book The Art of Unit Testing , which focuses solely on unit testing, has a paragraph saying that TDD is good, but does not otherwise sneak in TDD into the book.That being said, I am not angry with the author In fact, I m rather pleased with being exposed to BDD Nonetheless, I will be reading purer TDD books Test Driven Development By Example , Growing Object Oriented Software Guided by Tests to find outabout TDD, and will find outabout BDD.
