I’m joining Nick Hodges in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania for the Philly.NET Code Camp 2014 Refactored. I’ll be showing off the latest version of Appmethod, including the Free Forever C++ for Android version. Astute readers may have noticed that my sessions are not on .NET, and the conference isn’t actually in Philadelphia. I’m guessing that is the “Refactored” part.
If you are in the area, stop by and say hi. They still have tickets for the two day event where you can catch all three of Nick and my sessions, and maybe a few others if you are interested.
Michael Feathers defines “legacy code” as “code that has no unit tests”. Without unit tests your code is fragile, hard to change, and unreliable. Unit testing is the only way that you can be sure that your code does what it is supposed to do.
This talk discusses the basics of Unit Testing by defining terms, discussing what Unit Testing is and is not, and talking about the best techniques and practices for writing unit tests.
All the demos will be in Delphi code, but the principles all remain the same: There no longer is an excuse for not writing unit tests.
I plan on finding a good authentic Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich while I’m there too!
