Test-Driven Development Tutorial using Visual Studio Unit Tests

Test-driven development (TDD) is a concept that I have started utilizing when writing code. If you are unfamiliar with this concept, TDD can simply be described as the practice of developing the tests before coding the actual logic. If you are new to this concept, it may seem backwards to write a test before having any code to run it against, but I have found that writing code this way can help eliminate many potential bugs in your code. In this blog post I will describe the basic process of developing code using TDD, and walk through an example of writing code using this strategy to demonstrate how you can use TDD to write code more effectively. (Note: Mocks, Fakes, Dependency Injection and Inversion of Control will not be discussed since the objective of this post is only to demonstrate the TDD process.) Read More
