'Real Programmers Don't Need Unit Tests' in London this September
I will be in London this September giving a talk for Skills Matter on why "Real Programmers Don't Need Unit Tests":
Unit testing is a vital but neglected art. Good unit tests don't just test code: they are executable requirements that tell the story of your application, clarify your design, document your code and help track your progress. They help you find bugs fast, and fix them with confidence. If Real programmers don't need unit tests, they sure make life easier for the rest of us! More details...
This is a fun talk, so come along and enjoy!
There are also still a few places left on the London session of the Java Power Tools Bootcamp (September 13-17) - this is a great workshop covering the finer points of build, release and deployment automation with Maven 2 and 3, advanced Continuous Integration and Deployment with Hudson, automated code quality, and kick-ass test automation, BDD and ATDD with advanced JUnit 4, WebDriver and easyb! So don't miss out - sign up now!
