Test Driven Development (TDD) using Embedded C/C++

Course:  TDDEC
Duration:  3 Days
Level:  I
Course Summary

TDD is a modern programming practice that all C/C++ developers need to know. It?s a different way to program ? unit tests are written in a tight feedback loop with the production code providing ongoing valuable feedback to find mistakes before they become bugs and receive early warnings of design problems and notification of side-effect defects thus leaving more time adding valuable features to the product.

This hands-on course provides invaluable insight for creating successful test-driven development processes. Using embedded C/C++ examples, the course walks through the TDD methodology and shows how it is applied to a real-world application by following the code and tests as they evolve.
