Unit testing is known as one of the most effective software practices. Developers who write unit tests have less bugs, fix those bugs faster, and speed up development as a whole. In embedded software, with limited resources, and complex tools, unit testing becomes even more important.
This course will introduce unit testing tools in the embedded C/C++ environment. Attendees will practice the needed techniques to start testing both new and existing code.
The course is intended for: C/C++ developers and team leaders.
Following the workshop, attendees will be able to:
- Use unit testing tools with existing dev tools
- Write unit tests in C/C++
- Refactor code to make it more testable
- Mock different kinds dependencies
- Include tests in automated builds
- What are unit tests and how they compare to other types of tests
- Pros and cons
- C/C++ unit testing frameworks (GoogleTest and others)
- Manual mocking
- C/C++ mocking frameworks (FakeIt and others)
- Using unit tests in automated builds
- Unit testing in an embedded environment best practices
- Introduction to Test Driven Development
