6:00-8:00pm Speaker: Timothy Klenke

Abstract:

Based on the surveys collected at the start of the season, one of the asked for topics was Unit Testing. Although unit testing cannot be completed covered in a single session, this session will start at square one. Hopefully more advanced sessions will follow.

I’ll discuss my experiences working at a company that didn’t do any unit testing at all and the transformation to unit testing becoming common practice. We’ll discuss why unit testing is important and the value it brings to the business. We’ll cover different styles of unit testing. We’ll demonstrate creating a few simple tests. Additional resources and tips to get started will be provided.
