Presentation: "xUnit Test Patterns - Refactoring Test Code to Improve ROI"

Time: Monday 16:15 - 17:15

Location: Store Sal

Abstract: Test code performs a very important function but it quickly becomes a liability if it is not easy to understand and maintain. Well-written test code not only tells us when the production code isn't working properly, it also clearly describes the design requirements of the production code. Gerard illustrates how we can refactor complex test code to make it easier to understand by looking for test smells and applying simple test patterns.
