The following sequence of steps is generally followed:
- Add a test
- Run all tests and see if the new one fails
- Write some code
- Run tests
- Refactor code
There’s a plenty of articles written on TDD and Wikipedia is always a good start. This article will focus on the actual test and implementation using variation of one of the Roy Osherove Katas.
