2 days workshop on Unit Testing & TDD (Android Kotlin / Java & iOS), with Jorge D. Ortiz Fuentes

This year at MobOS we have decided to replace the various short workshops with a 2 days long one, to give everyone the opportunity to go in depth in learning all about Unit testing and TDD. The speaker will be Jorge, and we know many of you are already familiar with him, as it’s the 3rd time we have him in Cluj to deliver his amazing teachings. Below more details about the workshop syllabus and Jorge. 

Don’t forget to register! The seats are limited!

Workshop Description
Very likely you have been told about unit testing your code before. You may already know the theory and you would want to give it a try. But it is hard to walk this path alone since the first tests are the also the hardest.
Join us for this workshop and take a different approach: get to the top of the Unit Test Mountain with a Sherpa that will not only share the concepts but write the tests with you.
In this two day workshop you will learn:

  • What are Unit Tests and how to write them
  • How to simplify the tests and have Clean tests too
  • When and how to use Test Doubles
  • What is TDD and how to practice it
  • How to unit test everything in your app, including the views.

Take a New Year’s resolution now to make the quality of your code something better than a matter of faith!
