Hybrid Edition!

EUROPE'S GREATEST AGILE SOFTWARE TESTING FESTIVAL!

A Tester’s Guide to Unit Testing

Bringing testers closer to the code

Unpacking the world of unit testing in a way that a tester can understand and contribute towards. Bring the tester closer to the code and allowing for improved collaboration between devs and testers

We talk a lot about the testing triangle and how we need to focus more on the lower level unit and component tests for most of our coverage. However, in my experience unit tests and how to effectively write them remains a mystery for many testers and in this workshop I want to unlock the idea behind unit tests, how to write them in an effective way that ensures a high coverage, mitigates the need for too many higher integration tests and most importantly, makes them easy to read and contribute to for testers.

In this workshop I want to share my experience as both a developer and a tester in highlighting the mind-sets of both and how through collaboration between developers and testers, software quality can be greatly improved through effective unit testing. The workshop will focus on elements like reading code, discussing the different unit testing approaches, tips on how to write unit tests in a simple way and cover things like mocking and coverage analysis to improve coverage and scope of unit tests.

The workshop will be mostly technical, but also include a few soft skill tips to aid the communication and provide testers with more confidence to help change the unit testing culture in their teams.
