Start working with test driven development processes to build better applications

If you want to write robust software that is simple to implement and maintain, you need to use Test Driven Development (TDD). This hands-on guide shows you how, providing invaluable insight for creating effective TDD processes. With the help of source code and examples featured in C#, the authors walk you through the TDD methodology and show you how to apply it to a real-world application. You'll explore the application as it's built from scratch and follow each step involved in development, including problems that arise and the solutions to apply. Within no time, you'll be designing your own successful TDD processes.

      Comments about oreilly Professional Test Driven Development with C#:

      I'm sure the book is well-written and has some useful lessons. However, there is a major issue - the book relies heavily on the NBehave framework which stopped development during the Visual Studio 2012 timeframe, and does not work with Visual Studio 2013. In addition, NBehave won't work with the Community editions of Visual Studio 2012, so those of us trying to self-educate won't find this book very useful at all.
