August 13th – #xpman 62 – In Defence of Mocks, with Mark Kirschstein
Mocks don’t seem to have many fans. Common complaints being that they lead to:
Tests that are brittle.
Tests that are laborious to write.
Tests that are difficult to read.
Tests that don’t fail when you introduce a real bug.
Tests that have “mocks, returning mocks, returning mocks”.
Are mocks pointless? This session argues maybe, maybe not…
What to expect from this session?
