Test Driving Swift To The Max – with or without the tests!

Swift is the new systems language from Apple – aimed at iOS and Mac development. TDD has not been as central to these ecosystems as its has to some others – but it is still very much alive! We’ll look at why that might be, what challenges there are, and ways to mitigate – or eliminate – them. We’ll also look at what tools can help – and how Swift itself brings some new tricks to the table that can allow us to rethink the traditional process of TDD – and question whether we even need the tests at all!
