Test-Driven Deployment (TDD) is an evolutionary approach to development where you must first write a test that fails before you write new functional code. It is primarily an agile approach to software development and is one of the core principles of Extreme Programming.

This in-depth Agile-testing course will provide you with a solid introduction to TDD and "test first" design within the context of Agile processes and practices.

  • Concept of development agility and the Agile Manifesto
  • Major agile development methods and their strengths and weaknesses
  • Manage an agile environment within a structured organizational approach
  • Introduce agility into a development organization
  • Unit testing and how various xUnit frameworks facilitate unit testing
  • xUnit family of unit testing tools
  • Concepts of and motivations for TDD
  • Relate unit testing, test-driven development, and test coverage to agile processes
  • Importance of refactoring in supporting agile and test driven processes
  • Continuous Integration (CI) and components
  • Motivations for CI
  • Best practices for everything from CI to testing within the context of agile development

  • Knowledge of current development processes, such as structured top-down development and the waterfall method is beneficial
