Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Dror Helper, and welcome to my course, Unit Testing C Code in CLion. I am a software architect and a consultant who cares about his code and enjoys teaching professional software developers how to write better code. Writing C code is hard, and we can use all the help we can get. Unit testing in the modern development environment can make even the most difficult programming tasks simple and quick. In this course, we are going to learn how CLion IDE and unit tests can help you write good code and refactor existing legacy code. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what unit testing integration CLion has to offer, how to modernize and improve your code using tests, and how to start unit testing your C code today. By the end of this course, you will know how to use CLion and unit tests in order to create better and regression‑proof C code. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the C programming language. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about unit testing your C code with the Unit Testing C Code in CLion course at Pluralsight.
