professional test driven development with c developing real world applications with tdd Reviews
This is a decent book to convince yourself that writing tests before code is a good thing. It is very readable.For each class of tool used, the author picks one for use in the examples. The result is examples that relate to each other, allowing a reader to reinforce the concepts each time. There is a chapter which summarizes some of the different other tools which exist out there so you know that they exist. More tools will come out, tools will evolve, techniques invented etc... Hence this book can be used to jumpstart one's foray into TDD (or BDD? see next paragraph), but cannot possibly be a comprehensive reference.The word 'testing' is in TDD, hence I can understand advocating the use of testing frameworks, IoC containers and mocking frameworks. However, this book does much of the tests in a BDD style. I feel that the book's title will be better named something like "Writing Tests before Code". A positive example would be the book "The Art of Unit Testing", which focuses solely on unit testing, has a paragraph saying that TDD is good, but does not otherwise sneak in TDD into the book.That being said, I am not angry with the author. In fact, I'm rather pleased with being exposed to BDD. Nonetheless, I will be reading 'purer' TDD books ("Test Driven Development: By Example", "Growing Object-Oriented Software Guided by Tests") to find out more about TDD, and will find out more about BDD.
I was curious about this book, as I have already read other ones such as Test Driven Development: By Example, Test-Driven Development: A Practical Guide, Test Driven: Practical TDD and Acceptance TDD for Java Developers or Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests.So, this books is indeed about how TDD helps produce maintainable code. This book is—as its title says—focused on Microsoft .Net platform and the associated tools. It recalls important concepts such as the SOLID principles, how to mock dependencies, etc. before to dive into .Net specific examples that cover WPF, WCF, etc.What I like most is that it illustrates TDD in the context of Agile development, explaining how to break down a user story into features, and in turn into tests.
I'm not sure what to think about the inclusion of NBehave...it either should have been covered more, or left out entirely, IMO. I guess I'm intrigued enough to look into it some more. As with any book that covers TDD, there's quite an emphasis put on various frameworks (mocking, dependency injection, etc). It can be a lot to try and absorb if you're tentatively poking your toes in the TDD waters. Anyway, this was pretty well written. Personally, I liked the integration of unit testing with the overall sample project you build in the book Pro ASP.NET MVC 3 Framework better. That sort of put everything in a really good, practical context which is a bit lacking in this book.
very comprehensive coverage of what developing c# code test driven is. If you need one book that covers unit, functional and even give you a quick glace at UI test this is the one for you. Definitely recommend this one!
This book is a must read for any C# programmer looking to start testing! Had more to share but I recommend you just read the book.
Still reading ... Very interesting ....
I thought that the book would give me more insights on how to use Test Driven Development. But it was more of a cursory overview of TDD.
