September 13th – Test Drive your own Unit Testing Framework, with Andy Grant
For September’s meeting, we’ve been inspired by Kent Beck (again), this time from his excellent book, TDD by Example. @graan_jonlo will be looking at starting your own unit testing framework from scratch, and test driving it.
It’s usually considered a bad idea to roll your own framework when plenty already exist, but this session isn’t intended as practise for doing that for your commercial projects. This is a learning exercise to better understand the patterns testing frameworks use.
What to Expect
- A brief introduction into the motivation for the exercise and where to begin
This is a practical exercise, so bring a laptop set up to dev in your favourite programming language!
