By now Test Driven Development (TDD) is a well-known and appreciated practice exercised by many development teams around the globe.

Unlike the name suggests, TDD is not a testing technique but a development technique that results in cleaner, high-quality code. Implementing effective and useful TDD-ing is a complicated task that requires developers to have both discipline and familiarity with a set of test automation tools.

This 1-day workshop explains the TDD as a design methodology, briefly introduces the tools, and then dives into complex issues of real-world problems: APIs, complex integrations, using the principles in legacy code, and more. It includes hands-on exercises (about 50% of the workshop’s duration). Attendees will practice the needed techniques to start testing both new and existing code.

The workshop is intended for: Software developers and software team leaders.

Workshop length: 1 day.

Workshop goals

Following the workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Break down requirements into test cases
  • Use TDD to develop new code
  • Use TDD on legacy code
  • Refactor code to make it more testable

Workshop agenda

  • Test Driven Development (TDD) as a design methodology
  • TDD & BDD (behavior driven development)
  • Incremental testing
  • TDD in legacy code
  • Abstracting dependencies
  • Using adapters and facades
  • Refactoring for testability as preparation for TDD
  • Clean tests
  • TDD best practices


  • Familiarity with unit testing is required. The basics can be covered in the Introduction to Unit Tesitng and TDD workshop.
  • Attendees need to have their own laptops ready and download the exercises beforehand.
  • The training materials are targeted to either Java, JavaScript, Python, C, C++, Go or C# developers.
