Andrew Hampe from Yahoo will be presenting what he calls "A fist full of perl unit testing tricks".<br /> <br /> The presentation will provide good enough explanations about the differences between unit, integration and functional testing. The focus will be on how to do unit testing well.<br /> <br /> While there are many ways to do unit testing, including Test::Class, the general focus will be on a good enough flexible approach that covers testing both apps and modules.<br /> <br /> There will be illustrations of 'mock' objects and methods, as well fun with sensor methods.<br /> <br /> This will lead to the Devel::Cover testcover approach, and the basics of working with the Build testcover, the web presentation, and how to use this to focus on where<br /> to pick the low hanging fruit for more test coverage.<br /> <br /> As time allows we will drop into ever more esoteric tricks, perchance even showing that one can mock perl built-ins like exit() to show that if there is a will, there is a<br /> way to get to that 100% test coverage. -- Main.LambertLum - 2012-07-22
