The Raleigh-area Ruby Brigade August Meeting

  • Aug 19, 2008 · 7:00 PM
  • Red Hat Headquarters

__How to Fail With 100% Test Coverage__

With an expressive language such as Ruby and with modern test practices, 100% test coverage is readily achievable. But 100% coverage is meaningless without other supporting habits and practices. Over the last few years, we have taken dozens of projects to 100% coverage, and there are still plenty of things that can go wrong:

* Fragile Mocking
* Incidental Coverage
* The Ugly Mirror
* Overspecification
* Slow Tests
* Underspecification
* Shallow Tests
* Invisible Code

We will look at examples of each of these problems (and others as well), and show how to prevent them from infecting your project.
