Bootiful Testing
This is a virtual Meetup occuring at 5PM UK time (BST), here's a timezone calculator (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Bootiful+Testing%21&iso=20181003T17&p1=136&ah=1). You can tune in to the live session at virtualJUG.com (http://virtualJUG.com/) Join us for live, in-session discussion on our slack space: https://goo.gl/ELDDcp Abstract: How would you feel if you knew that any part of the code was at most a few minutes away from being shippable and delivered into production? How would you feel if you knew that any part of the code is a few ctrl+z's away from being shippable and delivered into production? Emboldened and confident? Test-driven development (TDD) gives you that. TDD allows you to proceed with confidence that you're building the right thing. It provides you with imminent-horizons that you can meet and measure. TDD gives developers the confidence to go faster, secure in the knowledge that what they break they will fix and be able to improve. In this talk, join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) as he looks at how to test Spring applications and services. We'll look at how to test basic components, mocks, how to take advantage of test slices, and how to test web applications. We'll also look at how to ensure that API producers and API consumers work well together using consumer-driven contract testing (CDCT) without sacrificing the testing pyramid for end-to-end integration tests. Speaker: Josh Long Josh (@starbuxman) is the Spring Developer Advocate at Pivotal. Josh is a Java Champion, author of 5 books (including O'Reilly's upcoming "Cloud Native Java: Designing Resilient Systems with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry") and 3 best-selling video trainings (including "Building Microservices with Spring Boot Livelessons" w/ Phil Webb), and an open-source contributor (Spring Boot, Spring Integration, Spring Cloud, Activiti and Vaadin).
