- Piotrek is going to talk about focus and distractions at the typical IT space and how to cope with them.

See the detailed agenda below!
1. [EN] "Mutation Testing" by Igor Gajowiak
Testing is a crucial part of every software development process. But how do we know that our test suite is good enough, how do we measure it? The very popular discriminator is the code coverage index. Is it an accurate method to measure it? During this presentation, I'll share a concept of mutation testing, which is another way of measuring the strength of a test suite. I'll present its advantages as well as disadvantages, and situations where mutation testing could be a cure for overfitted code coverage index.
Igor is a back-end software engineer in Chatham Financial. He graduated bachelor's in computer science in Wrocław and currently is pursuing master's degree, also in Wrocław. He's in love with neural networks and well-designed code.
