This is Kent Beck's book entitled: Test-Driven Development: By Example.


The book describes Test Driven Development, whereby tests are written before the corresponding code is written. The basic procedure is as follows:

  • Write a Unit Test.
  • Run the test.
  • If it fails, introduce new code. Do this until it passes.
  • Repeat.

Be warned, however, that Kent Beck takes (IMO) a very heavy-handed and rigorous approach. He does not like developers to deviate from the TDD procedure unless they are very experienced.
