Agile Testing and Test-Driven Development (TDD) of Embedded Systems

Agile testing of embedded systems is the consistent application of agile methods to the entire embedded system. Like agile development, the agile test approach involves a paradigm change. In test-driven development (TDD) processes, tests are generated and performed before the actual component is developed. The test grows incrementally with the system. By means of refactoring, test automation and test reruns, faults are identified at an early stage of the development process and can be located more efficiently. This training provides you with the required theoretical knowledge as well as practical methods of implementation.
