Guiding Object-Oriented Design with Tests

A session at Day Camp 4 Developers PHP Master Series III

Friday 20th December, 2013

11:20am to 12:20pm

A test suite is a very useful tool in any application. Often times people refer to unit test suites as a safety net for refactoring and modification. While that is one benefit of having a comprehensive testing strategy and implementation, the real power of unit testing comes when you learn to allow the tests you are writing to inform the design of your application. In this session we will explore the why and how of writing tests for code architecture and object-oriented design purposes. We will look at situations where tests are telling us we are introducing smells into our codebase and how we can correct those smells.
