"Testing with cfcUnit", with John Mason

When: Thursday, Feb 21, 12:00pm EST (GMT-5) (What time is that for you? See http://www.timeanddat... which shows it at EST, and you can choose your city from the list offered to see your time.) Meeting URL: http://experts.acroba... Duration: Approx. 1 hour Meeting will be recorded. URL will be posted after meeting on the Meetup Message Board (in the first msg, at http://tinyurl.com/2d...) We'll have two speakers on Thursday, Feb 21. First up will be John Mason on "Testing with cfcUnit". I'll have more on the 6pm speaker later in a separate entry. Description (provided by the speaker): Unit testing and test-driven development are common in the Java world but can still be fairly new to web developers. We will explore the different types of testing and how unit testing fits in. We'll try to address why unit testing is something you will want to do in your future development and current projects. Next, we will see how CFCUnit helps us in performing unit tests against our ColdFusion coding and then how it applies to the test driven development (TDD) methodology. Finally, we'll explore continuous testing with CFCUnit and ANT. With ANT, you can automate your unit tests and run them either command line or with Eclipse. If time permits, we will also review usability testing with Selenium and how to integrate that into your ANT scripts. This presentation has been given before to the NYCFUG in Nov 2007 and is schedule to be presented at the cfObjective in May 2008. Speaker: John Mason works at FusionLink, a ColdFusion and Flex hosting company based in Atlanta. He has been programming with ColdFusion since 1996 and Flash since 2001. John was a contributor to the CFDJ and actively posts on several ColdFusion, Flash and Flex related lists. He holds an Adobe ColdFusion Advance Certification and also a MBA from Georgia Southern University. Notices: PLEASE NOTE: when you login to the Connect room (the experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE LOGIN AS A GUEST. Do NOT attempt to use your meetup.com username/password. The login screen presented there has no connection to meetup.com. And if you have a real Connect account, don't use that either. Just sign in as a guest. It's just not worth the time to try to track who RSVPs and add them manually as participants in each meeting. You have no fewer features as a guest as when you would login with your own account. Thanks. As always, we do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. BTW, no need to RSVP if you can't make it nor even explain why you can't. With 1,300+ members, there's really no reason to explain your absence. :-) We'll also appreciate your sharing your feedback after the meeting (also offered via a follow-up email or via a link on the site). Finally, again, the recording URL will be posted on the Meetup Message Board, which can also be reached directly via http://tinyurl.com/2d...

    Particularly liked that he mentioned how CFCUnit could be used to run CFUnit tests - which is great for those of us not yet doing strictly OO-based development, and for dealing with projects that are in maintenance that are not OO.

    I thought the presenter started slow and it dragged.

    very informative, I have been trying to configure a local development setup matching this type of configuration on a Mac and this was very beneficial.
