This course is designed for Grails developers who wish to level up their testing knowledge and skills. 

Grails 3 simplifies unit, integration, and functional tests, allowing developers to build particularly robust and stable applications.

Through lectures, real-world examples, and hands-on exercises, participants will have the opportunity to explore multiple testing practices within Grails applications, including unit testing of Grails artifacts, integration testing, and functional testing of both APIs and HTML pages.


To get the most out of this workshop, we recommend participants have beginner to intermediate proficiency with Grails and an understanding of how web applications work in general.

Experience with Spock and Geb is a plus, but no particular expertise is required.
