  • Property based testing workshop - Nelson Morris

    Property-based testing encourages a high level approach to testing in the form of invariants functions should satisfy universally. The actual test data is generated for the programmer by the testing library. In this way code can be hammered with thousands of tests that would be infeasible to write by hand, often uncovering subtle corner cases that wouldn't be found otherwise.

    I'm planning to run a more workshop style meeting: 20 minutes of introducing concepts, and 20 mins for exercises, repeat. As part of this we'll use test.check and cover:

    1. Creating "Generators" for the test data

    2. Writing properties based on comparing to a known good specification.

    3. Writing "algebraic" properties (such as round-trip properties)

    I *really* would like to see this sometime but I will be out of town for this meetup. Maybe I could see it some other time...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
