Why You Absolutely Need to Unit Test

I’ve written about why builds are absolutely essential in modern application development (Part 1) and what why Team Build is a great build engine (Part 2). However, if you don’t include unit tests in your builds, it’s like brushing your teeth without toothpaste – there’s a lot of movement, but it’s not the most effective way to do things. In this post, I want to put forward a few thoughts about why you absolutely need to be unit testing.

Automated Builds–Why They’re Absolutely Essential (Part 2)

In my previous post I wrote about why you should be doing automated builds in general terms. In this post I’ll show you how TFS’s automated build engine gives you consistency and quality in your build processes. There are other build engines, but if you’re using TFS for source control (and/or test management and/or lab management and/or work item tracking) then Team Build makes the most sense as a build engine since it ties so many other parts of the ALM spectrum together.
