Software Craft Study Group: Property-Based Testing for Better Code

Link visible for attendees

Join our next session of the Software Craft Study Group to discuss the talk "Property-Based Testing for Better Code" by Jessica Kerr: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shngiiBfD80

Ideally you should watch the video before the meeting. We will present a short summary though, so if you don't manage to watch it, you can still join. The main focus of the meeting is a free discussion about the talk where everyone can participate.

What is the Software Craft Study Group about?

We want to take advantage of all the great content on Software Engineering available out there and learn from it to become better at our craft. These meetings give us an excuse to actually study these resources and a chance to ask each other questions for clarification as well as share our own experiences. It is also a great place to meet people.

We meet remotely (even if there is no pandemic going on), so you can join from anywhere! And don't hesitate to join if you are just starting your programming journey, as long as you are interested in the weekly topic this is the right place for you.

If you want to help choose the next topics, join our reddit community where you can suggest content, vote on suggestions, and discuss anything related to the group: https://www.reddit.com/r/SoftwareCraftSG

We also have a collection of links from previous discussions. If you have a link you shared or mentioned in a previous session, feel free to add it there.

Global Day of Coderetreat Zürich 2022

Needs a location


Global Day of Coderetreat is a day of learning - we pair program (always with different partners) in a series of increasingly difficult tasks. A perfect way to learn cool new stuff.

We'll be pair programming throughout the day, on a small problem, always from scratch. Please bring a laptop with your favourite development environment(s) set up for the language(s) you are comfortable with or are interested in trying. There will be six sessions during the day, with varying pairs, so you'll have ample choice in languages and environments.

A test-driven development style will be called for at least once, so please also make sure to have the necessary test frameworks/harnesses/environments in place. A blank hello-world workspace with a working test is a good starting point. Also, please have a version control system (git, hg, svn, etc.) ready to roll, for we may do a session where speedy commit/rollback will be part of the exercise.
