Advanced Techniques for Everyday Development
Session Length: 90
Advanced Techniques for Everyday Development - Building a basic text messaging system using Behavior Driven Development with Mock Objects - Confused by the new techniques coming from the Alt.Net crowd? Does writing unit-test code seem like, well... more work? Don't know the difference between a mock and a fake and not sure why you should care?
We'll use simple examples to introduce and show the value of test and behavior driven development. Once you have a basic understanding we'll move on to a more realistic business problem. You'll see an analysis of the business problem and the resulting executable behavioral specification. We'll end by looking at implementation issues and you'll see how mocks and fakes fit into the process.
When we're finished you'll be aware of a basic toolbox: NUnit, TestDriven.Net, Moq and a set of techniqes to make everyday coding easier.
