React Test-Driven Development (TDD)

marius profile image Marius Espejo ・1 min read

The idea behind Test-Driven Development is quite simple.

  1. Write a test BEFORE you implement your next bit of functionality

  2. Write the minimal implementation needed to make your test pass

  3. Refactor and re-structure what you've written so far as needed

Then just keep cycling through those 3 steps as you build out the rest of your project!

In the following video, I talk about TDD in detail and show you exactly how to start doing it in React.js

Let me know in the comments if you have feedback!

Nice and easy to grasp tutorial 👌

The sound is also pretty clear... would love to know which mic is that @marius

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback.

I am using the Shure SM7B mic in this video, it's a bit expensive (and to be honest debating if it was worth it so I appreciate you mentioning the sound). If you're looking for a starter mic I would recommend starting with something like the Blue Yeti (used in my older videos) or AT2020.

Thanks!

I actually use Blue Yeti, but it's heavy and I don't have it right now at home. So I was thinking about buying another mic... turns out that this one is even more expensive 😁

BTW, with Blue Yeti to get a better high quality recording closer to yours (I guess), I use adobe audition processing.
