TDD: What, How, and Why

A talk at the Podlodka Frontend Crew conference on the benefits of test-driven development (TDD) and how to implement it in your project, with a little live coding session at the end.

In the talk I talk about how TDD helps me in different projects, where I use it and why. We'll touch on:

  • Development culture and what testing has to do with it;
  • The benefits and challenges of writing automated tests;
  • How TDD helps solve those problems;
  • How to help the team lead and the business see the benefits of using TDD;
  • How to use tests to find “smelly” code;
  • How to simplify test writing.
