Writing tests is so... boring. And repetitive. And often, in hindsight, rather ad hoc, and therefore ineffective. We'll learn about property-based testing using ScalaCheck: how it compares to unit testing, when is it better (or worse); learning about different families of invariants and when they are appropriate for your code; how to structure the tests using the main ScalaCheck abstractions, run them, and debug them; and how to test stateful systems. Don't write tests! Write code that will write lots of tests!
Attendees will learn:
Adam Rosien is an Associate at Underscore ("The Scala Specialists"), focused on building systems using functional programming. He previously helped various startups in many domains develop back-end systems and implement continuous deployment practices, and also spent five years as a developer at Xerox PARC.
Noel is a consultant at Underscore, where he helps companies succeed with Scala. He is an author of "Essential Scala", "Scala with Cats", and "Creative Scala". He believes Strings are pure evil.
