Abstract:

Software craftsmanship gets more and more attention these days. There is a lot of attention of writing Clean Code. But what about tests? Writing Clean Tests is as important as writing Clean Code. In this session we will shortly introduce the concepts of Clean Tests, after which we will look at some tests and see how we can make them cleaner. The focus of this session is unit tests.
