Women Who Code: Unit Testing with JUnit and Mockito

Alchemy Code Lab
30 NW 10th Ave.
Portland, OR 97209 (map)



Unit testing is an important skill in software development, empowering developers to test new features while confidently maintaining existing functionality. In this hands-on workshop, we will write unit tests for a small Java program using JUnit and Mockito. We will discuss how to make a program "testable", how to use mocks and assertions, and share tips for debugging. This workshop will be conducted in Java, but is appropriate for any developer interested in unit testing.
