Writing Clean Tests

It is pretty hard to figure out a good definition for clean code because everyone of us has our own definition for the word clean. However, there is one definition which seems to be universal:

Clean code is easy to read.

This might come as a surprise to some of you, but I think that this definition applies to test code as well. It is in our best interests to make our tests as readable as possible because:

  • If our tests are easy to read, it is easy to understand how our code works.
  • If our tests are easy to read, it is easy to find the problem if a test fails (without using a debugger).

It isn’t hard to write clean tests, but it takes a lot of practice, and that is why so many developers are struggling with it.

I have struggled with this too, and that is why I decided to share my findings with you.
