#TuesdayTrivia: If at first you don't succeed, test again! (Win a copy of Test-Driven iOS Development)

As iOS apps become increasingly complex and business-critical, iOS developers must ensure consistently superior code quality. This means adopting best practices for creating and testing iOS apps.

Test-Driven iOS Development

Test-Driven Development (TDD) is one of the most powerful of these best practices. New release Test-Driven iOS Development from the Addison-Wesley Professional Developer’s Library Series is the first book 100% focused on helping you successfully implement TDD and unit testing in an iOS environment.

“You will find that as you get more comfortable with test-driven development—writing the tests and the code together—you get faster at writing code because thinking about the code’s design and the conditions it will need to cope with become second nature,” says author Graham Lee. “Writing test-driven code, including its tests, takes the same time that writing the code alone used to take, but with the advantage that you are more confident about its behavior.”
