Test-driven development is a development practice that helps runaway maintenance costs, and enables developers to build higher quality software. This course shows you why test-driven development is important and what problems it can solve.

Developing software can be expensive. Surprisingly, much of this cost is found in the maintenance of the software. Test-driven development aims to help with these runaway costs, as well as enabling developers to build higher quality software. In this course, Test-driven Development: The Big Picture, you'll learn the basics of test-driven development, a development practice aimed at building high quality software. First, you'll explore what test-driven development is and why it exists. Next, you'll learn the different terminology and tools of the trade when doing test-driven development. Finally, you'll learn how to utilize test-driven development by working through a series of test-driven development examples. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to start building software using your test-driven development skills, and improve the quality of software.
