About the Book

Updating your app frequently and safely... add new features quickly ... sleep well at night... these are the promises of Test-Driven Development. But it's not easy to do TDD in Android. Sometimes it looks like the framework and the testing libraries conspire against you! In this book we'll see how to get a big productivity boost without wasting too much time on complicated testing libraries or frequent reloading of the test code on the device.

We'll see how to write tests effectively, from the point of view of a programmer (not a tester!) We'll see which test to write and which ones not to write. We'll learn age-old techniques of TDD and software design that will help you in mobile development in general, not just with native Android. Above all, we'll learn how to make TDD fun!!!

I've worked through the book as it exists so far and am really impressed! Even as is, it explains the concepts beautifully and the examples build nicely and are non-trivial, yet clearly presented. — Michael Mee
