Course Title
Test Driven Design

Agile development is not really about being fast, but about sustainable speed. Lack of or inadequate automated testing makes it hard to respond to change. Automated testing provides two significant benefits: regression and better design. But, writing tests mechanically will not automatically give us the design benefits. This course focuses on how to use automated tests to drive the design of applications. We start with strategic design and then dive into tactical design issues influenced by automated tests. We learn about both test and design quality, how to maintain a good code coverage, and also the essential principles for creating lightweight design.
