Do you ever work on legacy code? Wouldn't you love to create characterization tests that could give you assurance of complete code coverage in just a few minutes?
When you're creating something new, how can you quickly come up with tests that exercise the code and get you to a working system?
Introducing Approval Tests: Like Batman's tool belt, it has exactly the tool you need, right when you need it!
- Cover your legacy module quickly with tests so you can start refactoring.
- Quickly generate TDD or BDD tests.
- Easily generate large combinations of parameter sets to ensure complete functional coverage.
- Unit test your Web UI without worrying about massive rewrites for every change.
Scott Wierschem will provide a quick overview of this handy tool. It's better than Bat Shark Repellant!

Wednesday, July 26: RSVP by going to Eventbrite. We will need an accurate head count in order to know how much pizza to order.
Meeting Location: PROS
2nd floor Conference Room B

Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin (ideally on the 3rd floor) in any spot marked PROS Reserved (but not PROS Priority Reserved), taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage (if needed) and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the right just before you reach the elevator bank.
