When you make a change to your code, how do you know it still works as expected?

Do you make sure to check edge cases? Do you make sure to test all possible code-paths? Do you make sure the changes you made to one module don't break other modules that depend on it? Do you do all of the above every time you make any change, no matter how small the change?

Doing all that every time a change is made is a ton of work. There has got to be a better way!

Using our skills as programmers, we can automate the testing process. This allows us to be much more thorough while simultaneously reducing effort over the long run.

In this presentation, we will learn the basics of writing automated tests. We will discuss unit tests, integration tests, and test-driven development (TDD).
