    30 Days of TDD: Day Five – Make Your Code SOLID

    September 18, 2013 Share
    In the previous two posts we started our practice of TDD with a simple example of a requirement, a couple of test cases and tests to match. We implemented the code necessary to make those tests pass. Along the way we discussed some of the tools we’ll be using going forward, including NUnit and JustCode. In this post I’ll be discussing the SOLID principals and how they can help with your practice of TDD and help you write better software in general.

    30 Days of TDD: Day Four – Making Your First Test Pass

    September 16, 2013 Share
    In the previous post I discussed the tools I will be using in this series; Visual Studio 2013 Preview as my development environment, NUnit as my unit testing framework and JustCode as my test runner. I also introduced a requirement and wrote my first test to capture that basics of that requirement. In this post I’ll demonstrate one of the most important concepts about TDD by writing just enough code to make the first test pass. I’ll then add more tests to introduce more functionality to our library.

    30 Days of TDD: Day Three – Your First Test

    September 13, 2013 Share
    In this post I will introduce you to JustCode and the NUnit testing framework. I’ll also demonstrate the basic TDD workflow from introduction of the first requirement all the way through to writing your first test. At the end of this post you will have a test based on a given requirement. In the next post we will work through the rest of the workflow and make the test pass.

    30 Days of TDD: Day One – What is TDD and Why Should I Use It?

    September 09, 2013 Share
    Welcome to the inaugural post in this “30 Days of TDD” series. If you’ve never done Test Driven Development or aren’t even sure what this "crazy TDD stuff” is all about than this is the series for you. Over the next 30 days this series of posts take you from “I can spell TDD” to being able to consider yourself a “functional” TDD developer. Of course TDD is a very deep topic and truly mastering it will take quite a bit of time, but the rewards are well worth it. Along the way I’ll be showing you how tools like JustCode and JustMock can help you in your practice of TDD.
