Bosses hate unit testing. They see it as code that doesn't contribute to the final product. Here's the truth though: unit testing makes you faster. You'll look at specific examples of how unit tests save time in the development process, whether you're creating UI-based applications or server-side libraries. With this in hand, you can show your boss how testing makes you faster and lets you move forward confidently and quickly.

You will learn:

  • How unit tests improve the speed of development of UI-based applications -- particularly workflows
  • How unit tests can improve the speed of development of APIs and libraries
  • That one of the benefits of unit testing is to create more maintainable code
