About the Presentation: Unit testing is a vast topic. The industry has accumulated a huge amount of information about it during the past two decades. However, not all unit testing practices yield equal results. Some of them are valuable and contribute a lot to the overall software quality. Others result in brittle tests. It is important for you as a developer to know which practices provide the best return on your efforts.
The topics covered include:
- What makes a test valuable,
- Styles of unit testing
- Mocks and their relation to test brittleness
This talk targets developers who are familiar with unit testing, already mastered all the basics around it and want to take their unit testing skills to the next level. The audience will learn how to get the most out of their unit test suite.
