TDD-01.3: Emergent Design and Test Organization

Audience: Software Developers

Prerequisite: Successful completion of TDD-01.2: Classic-style TDD.

Duration: 3 hours live online instruction, plus about 30 minutes of preparation.

This micro-class covers:

  • Emergent Design with TDD
  • Organizing and Naming Test Cases

This is the third of five modules in the larger course, TDD-1: Fundamentals of Test-Driven Development.

Micro-Class roadmap:

This class is heavily hands-on, experiential, and interactive. You will practice using TDD for emergent design by writing a text-based adventure game with guidance from the instructor. You will learn about effective ways to organize test suites and name test cases. You also receive original written information and links to curated online content with the instructor’s explanatory notes.

Programming exercises are done collaboratively using remote Mob Programming.

Each presentation of the class uses a single programming language. Register for a presentation that uses the language you need to work with. Please see the course calendar to find an appropriate version for your needs.

On successful completion of the course you earn the microcredential for Emergent Design and Test Organization, which is the third of five toward the TDD Fundamentals microcredential.
