​Jump-Start Your iOS Team With Our ​Unit Testing Class  

​Many developers have ​limited head-knowledge of unit testing, with little idea of how to practically apply it—especially to iOS code. I can help your team overcome the obstacles that keep them from consistently writing unit tests for their production code. This will accelerate their ability to ship.
