Abstract

One of the techniques I will be using is Test-Driven Development (TDD). You don’t need to use TDD, but I find it helpful as a learning aide. TDD is rapidly becoming the norm in large software projects. The advantages of this method of development are manifold. In collaborative projects, developers can ensure that their changes don’t inadvertently break something elsewhere. In long-lived projects, when you return to something from a long time ago, you can study the tests to maintain the code. Even in small projects (such as this one), using TDD will give you confidence that the results are correct.
