This Test Driven Development (TDD) training course provides students with hands on experience learning TDD methodology in the context of Java software development. Students build unit tests using mocks, fakes, stubs and drivers, and address issues working with databases and other systems. Students learn how to create tests that assure that code will meet and exceed requirements. The course shows how regression testing assures that code that receives “test coverage” will not break existing systems, because tests are passed before code is checked in.
Students spend time working with the issues involved in refactoring legacy code, safely cutting into an already deployed system. Students are shown how to look for, or create “seams” to more safely improve code or add features, and work on identifying “code smells” that need attention in a productive system. Finally, students will explore dependency issues as well as techniques to better understand and improve complex systems.
Comprehensive labs using Java and JUnit provide facilitated hands on practice throughout the course to develop competence and confidence with the new skills being learned.
Java programming experience and an understanding of object-oriented design principles. HOTT's Java Programming course or equivalent knowledge provides a solid foundation.

Class was great and very well paced. We had a small class size so there was a lot of detailed explanation. Would recommend HOTT to anyone.

Outstanding course with dynamic teacher! Was not expecting to get much out of this before starting the course but had expectations turned around on the first day. Changed my perspective on the subject of TDD through knowledge. Great course. Great instructor!

The teachers are great and HOTT always allows for a lot of flexibility. I have passed my experience up my chain of command for other co-workers.
