Software developers employ unit testing to individually scrutinize very small parts of an application (“units”), to test if they are operating properly. Unit tests are proven development testing activities for building quality into software, but only work as intended if they are written correctly, used consistently, and maintained as the code evolves.

If your organization is adopting (or has already adopted) a development testing strategy that includes unit tests, you’re part of the way there. However, in order to reap the full benefits of unit testing, developers should adopt certain unit testing best practices 

In this paper, we’ll explore simple unit testing best practices for optimizing your development efforts.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Create actionable tests for the present and the future.
  • Ensure that unit testing is adopted across the team.
  • Help the team avoid unit testing pitfalls.
