As Test-Driven Development has gained in momentum and popularity, it has also been called into question as a viable development strategy past the first 3-4 iterations in Agile projects. Many report that the test suite generated by the process can become a maintenance problem in and of itself, eventually collapsing under its own weight. This seminar addresses this issue by examining the TDD process in a different way. We will start by addressing these objections, and show how focusing on the right aspects of testing can prevent the tests from becoming obsolete, complex, and ultimately unsustainable.
