TDD and mobile development: some forgotten techniques, illustrated with Android

A session at Codemotion Roma 2016

Friday 18th March, 2016

11:20am to 12:00pm (CET)

Delivering updates with confidence; shortening time to market; writing clean and correct code every day: this is the promise of Test-Driven Development. But, it’s not easy to do TDD in Android. You have to run the tests on the device, or install a complex framework that mimics the Android APIs. Both options slow you down. In this session we’ll get back to the roots of TDD and show how to deal with this problem. We’ll learn time-tested techniques that reduce the need to run tests on the device. The good side-effect is that our code becomes simpler and better.
