First Class Test Code


Whether you test first, in parallel, or "eventually", some things remain the same. The need for tools and techniques that allow us to test edge and corner cases, and the need for maintainable, reusable testing code. In this session, we'll cover some interesting tools from Microsoft Research, Pex and Moles. Pex provides for automated identification and testing of edge and corner cases in code, while Moles allows you to test dark corners that were previously untestable. We'll also cover some common principles, patterns, and practices to help make your unit and integration testing code easier to understand and maintain in the long run.


Mel Grubb has been a professional developer since 1995, and a .NET developer from the early days of v1.0. He is currently a consultant for Quick Solutions in Columbus, Ohio. A "gadget geek", Mel likes to focus on identifying and promoting tools and techniques that enhance developer productivity and reduce friction, because our jobs should be interesting and fun, too.
