Test Driven Development is a process in which the developer will write a test before writing the code. This process will force the developer to take care in thinking what is the code to be tested actually going to do, as well as giving the developer a means to refactor the code assured that the code will not break.

This two-day course will introduce you to the concepts of Test Driven Development, the cycle of writing tests, writing code, refactoring and retesting. During the two days we will go through various concepts and tools that will assist you in writing fast and robust code.
• Clean Code
• Unit testing
• Mocks – Stubs
• Dependency Injection
• Code decoupling
• Model – View – ViewModel
• Refactoring
Various tools will be used to assist. As example
• TestInsight
• DUnit / DUnit 2 / DUnitX

Learning Outcomes
• Understand the thought process and steps involved during a typical test-driven session.
• Drive the development (design and implementation) of a User Story using unit tests.
• Discover improved confidence and increase in development speed by writing automated tests first!
• Learn various automated refactoring techniques and strategies to carefully clean the identified code smells.
• Practice key techniques to break coupling between classes and micro-test each component independently.
• Incrementally transform complex and difficult classes into readable, well-structured, and well-designed code, while keeping them running at all times

Audience/Participants/Previous knowledge
The target for this course is developers who wants to learn more about TDD and also develop robust code. The attendees should have working knowledge of development with Delphi
