TDD for Embedded C++
2019-08-22 22:38:11 UTC
Most useful learnings:
The idea of writing tests before code and making minimal changes to make tests fail/pass
Concepts v exercises:
Presentation v discussion:
The exercises had a good balance between how complex they were and how they illustrated the TDD concepts. I would have preferred to have some more exercises though. The exercise experience could be a little better if the coding environment used for training can be improved a little bit to feel more like a native editor.
The instructor is an expert in his field and answered all the questions that were asked.
Yes. Adding tests prior to refactoring in the workshop gave me a lot of confidence during the actual refactor and I like the idea of making small changes so that there is no need to debug. I feel this approach would be very helpful in the current work I'm doing.
Challenges to applying:
Making TDD a habit will take deliberate practice and often times I work with tests which take a long time to run.
