When you are developing and testing new features for an application, what is the methodology that you use? Do you develop the feature and then simply verify that is appears to work as intended in the application without writing a unit test? And if it’s working then, why would you need a unit test? Keep up this cycle and a big debt of test coverage is in your future. In this video, you’ll learn about the Test Driven Development methodology from Extreme Programming (XP) and how to implement TDD easily with features from Appsody (appsody.dev) stacks. TDD helps to close the gap between the development of features and unit tests for the features by iteratively creating tests and then writing exactly the code needed to satisfy the test. When using TDD, there’s no going back to write unit tests for features, because they’re done even before the feature is implemented.
