Using Test-Driven Development to Create Quality Software

By: Sienna Provvidenza


Finding a software development life cycle (SDLC) methodology to fit a company’s processes takes time and experience. Some leaders take a hybrid approach, combining multiple methods, whereas others stick to a single tried-and-true process. Sometimes the best way to determine what works for your team is to test out various approaches.

Leaders of the Forbes Technology Council shared their preferred software development life cycle methodology and described how it has helped their teams become more efficient. Patrick Emmons, Founder and CEO of DragonSpears, discussed using the test-driven development method and expressed how it creates quality software.

Emmons explained that while using extreme programming and scrum are impactful methods, without continuous testing, the team “will not reach its optimal performance.” The main idea of test-driven development (TDD) is to “shift the focus from the developer writing code to the quality assurance team, to writing code for the customer.”
