Parse Text

I was interested in showing a normal progression that the reader would encounter when developing software. In the days that passed, I decided to limit the subject to a single post. Please let me know if you encounter an issue or would like for me to expand on this entry.

There are probably thousands of variants to the challenge. I am not going to cover the exact challenge in this post. I will make my own. Will start simple and will get more complex each time we add a new obstacle. Continue reading “Parse Text”

Test Driven Development – TDD

I was about to continue the design and implementation of the single link queue using C++ and decided to write this blog to illustrate the TDD process that I follow when developing code. The initial architecture and design phases have already passed. I am now facing the design, implementation and testing of some methods that could be used around the implementation of dequeue (remove) the next element in a FIFO (First In First Out) fashion.

Please note that I am using C++ and the Visual Studio 2013 IDE running on a Windows 10 platform. Continue reading “Test Driven Development – TDD”
