Lambda Behave Hackday

About Lambda Behave

Lambda Behave is a modern testing and behavioural specification framework for Java 8.

If you're a Java developer and you've seen the fluent, modern specification frameworks available in other programming languages such as spock or jasmine then Lambda Behave is for you. Its goal is to make testing a more pleasant experience than it currently is with junit.


Hackday Details

In this hackday we'll be learning about and contributing to lambda-behave. The activities will include:

1. Do a few short katas to introduce the lambda behave API.

2. Help with trying out the lambda-behave API on personal projects.

3. Contribute to improving and enhancing the project.

You should bring a laptop with Java 8 installed on.

    Thanks again to OpenCredo, Daniel and Richard - for hosting the event and also walking us and supporting us with answers to our questions to the shiny new lambda-enabled unit test framework for Java 8 - Lambda Behave.

    Still plenty to explore - was happy to share my feedback with Richard, hope to submit some contribution in the near future.

    Thanks to the organizers and to OpenCredo for hosting the events. I'll definitely give the library a try for some personal projects, and I'm looking forward to seeing the developments after today's session.

    I've uploaded my implementation of the bank's exercise at this link:

    Thanks again!

    • Daniel B.

      Sure, ideally it would be good if the person signed up to the LJC meetup group, but if this isn't possible could you send the guest's name and email address to [masked] please?

      Will do. Thanks for this.
