Talk, by Eduardo Guerra
Wednesday, June 22, 14:00 – 15:30 @ B 002

When you use Test Driven Development as a design approach in a software project, any change in the requirements should be adjusted first in the unit tests. Consequently, the test code quality and cleanness is as important as in the production code. This talk introduces the technique of test code refactoring as an approach to continuously improve the test code quality. It brings up some issues like “how to define test code behavior?” and “how to maintain test code behavior?”, and presents new test code refactorings and their respective classification.
