Advanced Unit Testing

Advanced unit testing is a 2-day immersive training and learning experience that covers the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean, fast, repeatable, and maintainable tests. Over 70% of this class involves hands-on coding through sample exercises in Java and C#. The focus of this class is on writing, structuring, and organizing unit tests as programmers work through existing code samples with zero tests.

In the Certified Scrum Developer – Agile Engineering Practices (CSD) class participants got an introduction to writing unit tests. In this course, programmers learn patterns and conventions for well-written tests, pitfalls to avoid, patterns to make testing easier and faster, best practices on test structure and grouping, and advanced mocking concepts to help manage dependencies.
