With the clarity and precision intrinsic to the Test-Driven Development (TDD) process itself, experts James Newkirk and Alexei Vorontsov demonstrate how to implement TDD principles and practices to drive lean, efficient coding--and better design. The best way to understand TDD is to see it in action, and Newkirk and Vorontsov walk you step by step through TDD and refactoring in a n-tier, .NET-connected solution. And, as members of the development team for NUnit, a leading unit-testing framework for Microsoft .NET, the authors can offer matchless insights on testing in this environment--ultimately making their expertise your own.

Test first--and drive ambiguity out of the development process:

  • Document your code with tests, rather than paper
  • Use test lists to generate explicit requirements and completion criteria
  • Refactor--and improve the design of existing code
  • Alternate programmer tests with customer tests
  • Change how you build UI code--a thin layer on top of rigorously tested code
  • Use tests to make small, incremental changes--and minimize the debugging process
  • Deliver software that's verifiable, reliable, and robust
