About this course

Tests are essential for programmers! Errors in software are inevitable and costly. Testing enables programmers to catch more of their own bugs before deploying their code. Testing is so important that some developers write tests before anything else, in a methodology known as test-driven development.

  • The progress I have made since starting to use codecademy is immense! I can study for short periods or long periods at my own convenience - mostly late in the evenings.

  • I felt like I learned months in a week. I love how Codecademy uses learning by practice and gives great challenges to help the learner to understand a new concept and subject.
