You may already know Property-based Testing as a complementary approach to TDD. You may also have heard of Monoids: they are simple maths creatures really useful to model all sorts of real-life business situations. In fact, you're probably familiar with them without knowing it. If not, do not worry: we’ll cover them first before starting a kata expected to demonstrate how well they combine!
Join Cyrille & Mathieu for this 2-hour workshop where you will be guided towards coding your own domain model powered by monoids and guided by Property-based testing. You will be ready to apply monoids at work the next day and it will change your coding (and testing) style forever!
Key learning points:
- Discover or revisit your understanding of Property-based testing and monoids
- Start practicing Property-based testing on an ideal case thanks to the strong properties of monoids
- Acknowledge the limits of the approach, and the relationships with other design patterns
