TDD and ‘Self’-Shunt

Thursday 18th July 7:00pm at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)

Leave your mocking frameworks at home, as Gemma Cameron and Iain Mitchell take us on a journey through ‘self’-shunt testing.

This month Gemma Cameron and Iain Mitchell will be demonstrating an alternative to using mocking frameworks in your tests using the ‘self’-shunt testing pattern. They will be working through the checkout kata, test driving it as if they really meant it, and showing how to drive out good design from the beginning by telling and not asking. There will be a huge focus on tiny, incremental changes and refactoring to the nth degree. Expect lots of code smells to be neutralised whilst they sip gin between commits.
