In this chapter, we start building the online bookstore for George for real. We first explain test-driven development (TDD), why we should use it, and how we can use it with Rails. We also describe the testing schemes that exist in Rails. After the introduction to TDD, we dive into our first sprint, implementing the author management system for our application. This is the first part of the administration interface to our bookstore application, to allow handling creating, reading, updating, and deleting of book authors (often referred to as CRUD capabilities). After completing this chapter, you should be able to use TDD to make a simple application in Rails.
