accessUnitFork - Unit Test Framework/Utility for Access-VBA

This page is mainly a placeholder for future content! - I put this here as landing page for attendees of my Software Quality talk at Access DevCon 2019

At Access DevCon 2019 I mentioned and briefly demoed my adaption of the accessUnit-Framework by André Minhorst for Unit Testing and Test Driven Deveopment (TDD) in Access/VBA.

My own adaption of the accessUnit-Framework should not be considered complete nor would I claim it to be ready for production use, yet. However, if you still want to try it and play around with it, it is available for Download:   accessUnitFork - 20190424

A good introduction in German into Test Driven Development (TDD) and the accessUnit-Framework is the article Testgetriebene Entwicklung mit Access also by André Minhorst.

For beginners in TDD, I recommend Kent Beck´s Test Driven Development: By Example (affiliate link).

Another recommendation for getting started with Test Driven Development and Extreme Programming is Extreme Programming in Practice (affiliate link) by James W. Newkirk and Robert C. Martin (aka: "Uncle Bob").
