We want to build a community around passionate developers, interested in improving their technical skills, in discussing and sharing their knowledge with their peers.
This is all about "learning by doing": Coding Dojos, Architectural Katas, Mob sessions, moderated discussions, ...
• Practical, concrete discussions on code over generic talks. • Solutions applicable in any language over vendor-specific tool marketing. • Exchange of ideas in an open environment over passive listening. • Learning by practising with peers over hearing and forgetting.
In this session, we will discuss approaches for working with legacy untested code in a safe way.
We will see how Approval Testing and Mutation Testing techniques can be combined to quickly build a robust suite of characterization tests that enables us to refactor with confidence.
6:15 pm - Approval Testing and Mutation Testing introduction and live demo.
7:00 pm - Hands-on time.
Please, bring your laptop prepared with your favourite programming language and IDE you plan to use already installed. Wifi will be available.
Remember this is a Software Crafters session, meaning we respect each other, show passion for learning and teaching!
We welcome developers in any programming language, of different experiences and perspectives.
Facilitated by Paulo Clavijo.
