    Automated Testing - Rhyme or Reason (or both)?

    Automated tests can provide quality and reliability to your codebases.  They have become so popular that methodologies such as TDD have hit mainstream.  But are they really that magical?  Do they really always provide value with minimal cost?  Should we ALWAYS write tests and write tests first?  In this talk, we will dive into the concepts of automated tests, look at sample usage of testing libraries (JUnit/Mockito), learn the basics of TDD and more importantly, discuss tradeoffs.  To wrap it all up, we'll open the floor for discussion around personal experience with automated tests, facilitated by NJUG leader Tim Pote.


    Bio

    Daniel Aquino has been a Java software developer for over 9 years.  He started as a developer working with state government agencies and now currently works for Digital Reasoning on software to help law enforcement combat child trafficking.  He started writing tests mid-way through his career, has made mistakes with testing and continues to learn from them.

    Introduction to .NET Core with Steve Brownlee

    The next version of the .NET Framework - .NET Core - pulls in some best practices from the open source software world, and becomes cross-platform in an effort to revitalize interest in the platform from young developers, and startups.
    I’ll be briefly talking about, and then showing examples of, the following major features:

    1. Dependency Injection

    2. Middleware

    3. Working on the Command Line

    4. NuGet Package Manager

    5. Kestrel

    The most interesting feature is that all coding with be done on OSX.


    Steve Brownlee is dedicated to helping teach the next generation of software developers by providing people with a solid understand of the core technologies used today, and then expanding into how to be a valuable contributor.
    Brownlee has been developing software since 1980, when he programmed his TRS-80 to do his math homework for him. Since then, he grew up with the World Wide Web explosion and discovering all the new technologies that got invented to exploit its capabilities. 37 years later, he wants to take all the knowledge and skills he has accumulated and teach a new generation how to be software developers.

    The Nashville .NET User Group meets every second Thursday of the month at Corizon Health in Maryland Farms (Brentwood, TN).
