This is a joint event with SF Scala -- please register there!


ScalaTest 3.1 will include built-in support for property-based
testing. In this talk, Bill Venners will explain property-based
testing, walk you through the design implementation of ScalaTest's
support in 3, and compare it to
ScalaCheck's approach. In addition, Bill will show a preview of
Expectations and Facts, coming in ScalaTest 3.2, and show how Facts
and property-based testing can be combined to describe and check
contract specifications.

Bill Venners is president of Artima, Inc., provider of Scala
consulting, training, books, and tools. He leads the open source
projects for the ScalaTest testing library and the Scalactic library
for functional, object-oriented programming. He is coauthor with
Martin Odersky and Lex Spoon of the book, Programming in Scala. And he is a community representative on the Scala Center's Advisory Board.

We're lucky to be in Bill's habitat, and he will teach special Scala retreats in March and April:
