Get Groovy with Paul King at ApacheCon 2018

Featured Presentation

Make Your Testing Groovy

One of the Apache Groovy programming language's greatest strengths is how easy it is to write concise but easy to read tests. There are numerous libraries specifically designed to aid writing behavior-driven tests, and the powerful scripting capabilities make it easy to apply a range of useful testing techniques and approaches.

OCI's Paul King will show you how an open source scripting language such as Groovy can be useful for your testing. He will cover different runners, like JUnit, TestNG, and Spock, and auxiliary libraries like Geb, as well as techniques like all-combinations, all-pairs, and property-based testing.

DATE: September 25, 2018

TIME: 12:05 p.m. – 12:55 p.m.
