Modern C++ Programming With Test-Driven Development, the only comprehensive treatment on TDD in C++ provides you with everything you need to know about TDD, and the challenges and benefits of implementing it in your C++ systems. Its many detailed code examples take you step-by-step from TDD basics to advanced concepts. As a veteran C++ programmer, you’re already writing high-quality code, and you work hard to maintain code quality. It doesn’t have to be that hard.
In this book, you’ll learn:
- how to use TDD to improve legacy C++ systems
- how to identify and deal with troublesome system dependencies
- how to do dependency injection, which is particularly tricky in C++
- how to use testing tools for C++ that aid TDD
- C++11 features that facilitate TDD
As you grow in TDD mastery, you’ll discover how to keep a massive C++ system from becoming a design mess over time, as well as particular C++ trouble spots to avoid. You’ll find out how to prevent your tests from being a maintenance burden and how to think in TDD without giving up your hard-won C++ skills. Finally, you’ll see how to grow and sustain TDD in your team.
Whether you’re a complete unit-testing novice or an experienced tester, this book will lead you to mastery of test-driven development in C++.
"Jeff Langr has written another excellent book. This time he brings Test-Driven Development to the world of C++. Jeff’s starting example brings us face to face with the stark simplicity of good TDD. He explains why we work that way and then provides key practical details, all the way through test doubles, working with legacy code, threading, and more. This one is a keeper for anyone working with C++!"
