DDD8 was a lot of fun!
I really didn’t know what to expect and it turned out great, and got to a few talks ( not as many as I wanted tho) and met personally a lot of really interesting people.
Moving on swiftly to the meaty bit of the post:
I’ve uploaded the code and slides to github, I m hoping I can improve this samples with time, if there is anything wrong apologies in advance, first time using git as a committing to a project so I m bound to get it wrong. Looking forward to James Gregory E-Van on git so I can learn more on the topic :).
I’m sure I ll look at the code sometime later and think OMG! how did I dare to present this in public, but I guess is the nature of the beast :).
If you saw the talk please let me know what you think, as I would appreciate any feedback, particularly the parts that I can make better. So far I the feedback I have is:
I do speak too quick,
I should talk about legacy code and how to deal with that
I posted the code in the same way I presented it, this means there is a OrderService_version1, 2 and 3, hopefully you can follow the code pretty much as we did it in the talk.
There was some questions, and I said I ll post some links here:
The Art of Unit Testing (Roy Osherove), the talk is heavily inspired by this book
xUnit Test Patterns, Refactoring Test Code ( Meszaros), Great book if you are looking for more detail. Perfect as a reference book
- TDD by Example by Kent Beck, a very hands on approach highly recomended.
- Working Effectively with Legacy Code, Michael Feathers - A must read if you are interested in testing (whether you are working with legacy code or not).
During the talk I was using
Unit testing frameworks:
Other tools mentioned:
-Rhino Mocks: Possibly the most used Mocking Framework
-NCommon: General purpose library, definitely worth a check
-Ninject: IoC container ( there is also .. Ninject.MVC that helps you wire up the dependencies of your controllers on they fly, very useful )
-Windsor: IoC container
If there are any questions or comments, please do let me know
Thanks to the organizers and everyone there, it was a wonderful experience that I m hoping to repeat.
