Test-Driven Development for HPC Computational Science & Engineering
SESSION: Test-Driven Development for HPC Computational Science & Engineering
EVENT TYPE: HPC Educator
TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM
The primary goal of this half-day session is to teach HPC Educators, especially those that interact directly with students in Computational Science & Engineering (CSE) domains, about Test-Driven Development (TDD) and provide them with the resources necessary to educate their students in this key software engineering practice. The session will cover three related topics: Unit Testing, Automated Testing Frameworks, and Test-Driven Development. For each session topic, there will be a lecture followed by a hands-on exercise. Both the lecture material and the hands-on exercise materials will be provided to attendees for subsequent use in their own classrooms. Due to the difficulties in testing many CSE applications, developers are often not able to adequately test their software. This session will provide attendees with an approach that will enable them to teach students how to develop well-tested software.
