Abstract

This chapter describes the practice of test-driven development (TDD) and its impact on the overall culture of quality in an organization based on the author’s experience introducing TDD into four existing development projects in an industrial setting. The basic concepts of TDD are explored from an industry practitioner’s perspective before elaborating on the benefits and challenges of adopting TDD within a development organization. The author observed that TDD was well-received by team members, and believes that other teams will have this same experience if they are prepared to evaluate their own experiences and address the challenges.
