Additional Resources

  • Eric Elliott. (2019) TDD Changed My Life. Medium
  • A good walkthrough of test driven development in action, using Ruby (but with Rspec … not Minitest) can be found at Rails Girls Guides: Test-Driven Development.  In fact, it is a good exercise to try on your own, although you will need to make some syntax changes if you use Minitest.
