Implementing Agile Test Driven Development for Non-Programmers (TT3530)

Test professionals, test managers, project leaders, quality analysts, and developers

Prerequisite

  • Knowledge of current development processes, such as structured top-down development and the waterfall method is beneficial

Expected Duration
2 day

Description

Test-Driven Deployment (TDD) is an evolutionary approach to development where you must first write a test that fails before you write new functional code. It is primarily an agile approach to software development and is one of the core principles of Extreme Programming.

This in-depth Agile-testing course will provide you with a solid introduction to TDD and “test first” design within the context of Agile processes and practices.
