Add to calendar

Do you want to take your testing skills to the next level? Are you trying to stay relevant on an agile team where testing is shifting to the left on the project timeline? Do you want to help your organization reap the full benefits of testing earlier? Then join Tariq King to explore the fundamentals of unit testing so you can find bugs as soon as they happen and do more thorough, targeted testing during software development. This introductory session is for everyone—of all programming skill levels. Learn how to apply program-based techniques such as testing by looking, automated unit testing, mocking, and code coverage analysis. Tariq explores core concepts and constructs used in modern programming and walks you through a set of practical code-based testing exercises. Leave ready and able to collaborate with developers in new ways that enable you to uncover defects faster, earlier, and more cost effectively.

Note: Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a Windows or Mac computer to this tutorial.
