One thought on “Working Effectively with Unit Tests

  1. Gareth Jones

    It says read , but that would be an exaggeration Briefly tolerated its existence before setting it on fire would be accurate It burnt remarkably well, 5 stars.

  2. Timo Mihaljov

    I wish every developer I work with had read this book including the past me It distills into a surprisingly short amount of pages many important lessons that I ve learned the hard way over a number of years For a beginning or intermediate unit tester this book is a must read The most experienced unit testers may not find much new in it, but even they can benefit from seeing unit testing from the author s unique point of view.What sets this book apart is its hands on approach You re thrown right [...]

  3. Eric Casteleijn

    A quick, enjoyable read The focus of the book is how to improve ROI of your unit tests, and provides helpful suggestions to achieve this There is no dogma here, nor anything revolutionary, but it s a solid addition to the testing literature.If I have to list a downside, it s that all the examples are Java, and I wonder if some of the patterns are less valuable in other say dynamic languages I would have loved to hear the author s thoughts on this, but it s a minor quibble, and I would still reco [...]

  4. Joe Walnes

    This book is a breath of fresh air Things I really like The evolution of a hairy test to something really clean is elegant It skips the usual slow history and get straight to the point I wish people wrote tests like this I see so many unit tests that make me sad due to over complicated abstractions that hamper readability Having a book to point people at will really help Doesn t get carried away with frameworks, DSLs and such, but mostly it s just really straight forward programming.Thank you M [...]

  5. Jake McCrary

    This is a book I plan on strongly recommending to other developers Jay Fields presents his strategy for testing and his definition of a unit test The book starts with some marginal unit tests and slowly improves them I found myself feeling uncomfortable with the initial version of the tests and it was rewarding seeing the tests improve and having that uncomfortable feeling disappear.Why do you write tests What do you try to get out of testing How do you make failing tests useful By the time you [...]

  6. Marcus Ahnve

    As someone who has done TDD for 10 years, this book still taught me a few new things and made me reconsider how I like my tests setup I really like the format of the book by clearly addressing readers already experienced with testing Jay manages to keep the book short and information dense in a way I wish technical writers would.

  7. Jan Van Ryswyck

    An opinionated masterpiece about how to write maintainable unit tests This book contains lots of details and well thought out practices Highly recommended for those who want to step up their game when it comes to unit tests and TDD.

  8. Ahmed Chicktay

    A very pragmatic discussion of the challenges writing unit tests, and the solutions that the author uses.

  9. francisco jose albert albusac

    not a serious tdd bookthe book go too fast over many deep contents, providing little insight examples are really basic as well waste of money.

  10. Kirill

    Good book I think this book is best start point to know unit testing If you are junior, you will find this book is very useful Recommend it

  11. Johnny Graber

    Jay Fields uses in Working Effectively with Unit Tests a different approach than most authors that write about TDD How does test driven development creates value As a measurement to judge the different approaches he uses ROI return on investment and explains the different side effects certain styles of tests have This at least for me new way to look at TDD is refreshing and helps to stay away from code bases that are impossible to change after an endless amount of tests are written that no longe [...]

  12. Vlad

    Great book Jay did a great job of providing excellent examples and explanations behind why he is changing those tests Another great thing about this book, that it s 330 pages but they are all about testing, and no history or other unrelated to testing material.

  13. Bugzmanov

    The book is very pragmatic and short Pretty nice overviews dos and don ts of unit testing With excellent examples to prove the points But I would recommend to read Growing object oriented software guided by tests by N Price first

  14. Barry

    Great book, but my only quibble is that using Java for the examples requires much code for writing tests than in a dynamic language I definitely learned a lot about designing unit tests, useful in any language.

  15. JoseSeco Sanz

    Meh It s good It s probably directed to people that have been using unit tests for a very long time and use them extensively, which is not my case It does have good info, it s probably that I don t know enough to get all of this book.
