How to Learn Test-Driven Development (TDD) - 35 Bootcamps to Get You Started

Not Sure Where to Apply?
By: The SwitchUp Team
Last Updated: January 10, 2020

Test-Driven Development (TDD) is a software development approach where tests are written before writing the bare minimum of code required for the test to be passed. The code will then be refactored, as many times as necessary, in order to pass the test, with the process being repeated for each piece of functionality. In other words, requirements are turned into very specific test cases and then the software is improved so that the tests are passed. Thus, code duplication is avoided. The primary goal of TDD is to make the code clearer, simpler, and bug-free. Classes that teach TDD feature exercises and workshops that teach students this innovative method.

Those pursuing careers as software developers would benefit greatly from a TDD bootcamp. In 2018, software developers earned a median annual wage of $105,590, and prospective job growth over the next 10 years is 21 percent. Many software developers work for companies that specialize in computer systems design and related services, manufacturing, or for software publishers.

Those interested in pursuing a career in the technology sector that includes education in TDD can easily find a bootcamp on SwitchUp’s online platform. Those selecting a TDD bootcamp should already have a background in programming and computer science.
