Testing In Scala
Most introductory programming books include a chapter on testing, seemingly as an afterthought. For the test-driven developer, that's a little too late. Some programmers approach a new programming language with a few test-cases to understand a concept. Others thrive under fire and want to hit the ground running in a new programming language by creating an application.
It just so happens that testing code in Scala is a great way to learn Scala, but also really good at testing Java code. This presentation started a book on how to use some of the greatest tools that you can use to test. This presentation will cover ScalaTest, Specs2, ScalaMock and ScalaCheck all in a triggered execution environment using SBT. For those that do not wish to use SBT, we will cover other options as well. Using these tools you may never want to use those plain jane java testing frameworks ever again. While this presentation is not interactive, all demos will be available on github for those that want to "play" along with their laptops.
