Gain hands-on experience with unit test design, implementation, and execution in this two-day course for development team members who are comfortable with their programming language and the basics of object-oriented design. Attendees learn the techniques of design and developing unit tests, test-driven development (TDD), unit testing best practices, and ways to increase unit test coverage.

This set of practices for developers is essential core competencies for ensuring what they build is effectively tested.
This workshop-style course provides hands-on exercises to allow developers to immediately apply unit testing techniques in an informal and interactive setting. Attendees will leave the workshop with the ability to apply unit testing best practices in their own environment.
