Unit testing has entered the main stream. It is generally considered best practice to have a high level of unit test code coverage, and to ideally write tests before the code, via Test Driven Development.
However, some code is just plain difficult to test. The cost of effort of adding the tests may seem to outweigh the benefits. In this session, we will do a quick review of the benefits of unit tests, but focus on how to test tricky code, such as that static and private methods, and legacy code in general.
Examples are in Java, but the principals are language agnostic.
