Summary

We learned a lot in this chapter about Unit testing and Test-Driven Development, which are best-practice disciplines for quickly building reliable programs.

Specifically, we covered the definition of Unit testing, how unit testing can help during each stage of the development process, what it feels like to use unit testing to drive development, and how it can make the process quicker and more pleasant.

Now that we've learned about Unit testing, we're ready to talk about making it easier to isolate tests with the help of mock objects—which is the topic of the next chapter.
