Details about the talk:

Title : Introduction to Mock Objects

Outline : Steve will introduce the concepts of growing a codebase using TDD with Mock objects. Using this technique you will learn how to use unit tests directly to guide the design of the domain code, drawing out interfaces and implementations from the needs that each test identifies. Steve will show how difficulties in testing can be used to suggest improvements in the code. The examples will be based on jMock, although the underlying principles are generic.

Following the Intro presentation and discussion, Steve will work through a small example with the audience using the Coding Dojo format.

Prerequisite for attending the workshop :

This workshop is targeted at fairly skilled developers. The participants need to have:
  • Decent experience with building applications using Object Oriented principles
  • Working experience with a good OO Language. Java is preferable. C#, Ruby, Python, etc are also fine.
  • Experience using an IDE like Eclipse, NetBeans or IntelliJ.
  • Basic knowledge about Test Driven Development, or at least Unit testing
  • Since this workshop has a hands-on session, we would require the participants to carry their laptops with basic development setup.
