Test Driven Development with Spring Boot


Test Driven Development (TDD) constitutes an important aspect of Agile, although it has not drawn the attention it deserves. To align with strict deadlines, very often it is found that the written tests are adapted to the code and not the other way around, thereby introducing a validation bias while software engineers still have the wrong impression that guarantees high-quality standards.

Spring has long been around as the de facto standard framework for developing Java applications and addresses almost all modern business needs via its portfolio projects. Spring Boot, in particular, offers a new paradigm for developing Spring applications with minimal effort, with more agility, and with minimal (or possibly no) configuration effort.

Through this Code.Learn Test Driven Development with Spring Boot program, designed in exclusive collaboration with Athens Tech College, participants will focus on producing executable documentation (unit tests) and specifically, in small batches, along with production code (TDD). They will explore refactoring and make it an unnoticeable habit or their workflow. They will understand that the ultimate goal of these disciplines is to empower them to create well-designed, high-quality, crafted software and they will learn to apply the same disciplines in their day-to-day work.
