Basics of Test Driven Development

Test-driven development (TDD), an evolutionary approach to development which combines test-first development where you write a test before you write just enough production code to fulfill that test and refactoring.

Course Overview

What is the primary goal of TDD?

Another view is that TDD is a programming technique.
