Daniel's and Seb's talk about fancy new testing techniques @ Clean Code Days 2016.

In particular, it's about Mutation Testing and Property Based Testing - in a nutshell. Both were discussed frequently during the last years' conferences. We think every developer should at least have heard about both testing techniques, that's why we did this talk. The slides contain theory, examples and pitfalls when applying both techniques.

  • Mutation Testing detects the typical "off by one" bugs by finding blind spots in your code which are not covered by tests.
  • Property Based Testing helps you find out whether your code fulfills the specifications - a quite different approach to the exampled based testing we're used to.
