You Should Have a Test Pack
Software tests increase confidence in an application's behavior, make it easier to grow and maintain, help identify break bugs and even act as a form of documentation. For a developer who is practicing TDD, writing tests is another important step before writing any application code.
The problem tests reduce, are costly to solve, so they help organizations as much as developers.
Of course tests don & # 39; Don't write yourself, and there's a cost associated with creating a comprehensive test suite for an application. One of the obstacles to creating a useful test package is building the infrastructure required to write and run tests. Programs are complicated animals, and useful tests need to deal with this complexity.
The series does not cover test philosophy or offer any opinions on what is or is not a good test, but it will show you how to add and configure a set of tools that allow you to write thorough tests to support a program . If you are looking for ideas on how to write good tests when you have the tools set up, have a look at some of the other Nerds test blog entries.
The series starts with the "Basic" video, so I see you there when you're ready to get started.
