7 Tips For Writing Great Unit Tests

How do you learn to write great unit tests?

How do you learn to write great unit tests? Why are some unit tests good and some bad? I’m a big evangelist of test driven development (TDD) and of software testing in general. It’s amazing how much confidence a suite of hundreds or thousands of tests give you when you’re deploying your code. I’ve previously written about writing great unit tests but I thought I’d turn that information into some slides and record a video. Although I am mainly coding using JavaScript and Node.js, here I talk about what you should think about to create useful unit tests in any programming language. Hopefully it’ll give you a few tips to start writing your own unit tests for your projects.
