Speakers from both the industry and community are chosen to present on topics requested by you, our attendees. These are usually focused on web development topics.
Free pizza is provided by our sponsors for all events, because what would a developers user group be without pizza?
Effectively scaling any application is difficult. There are dozens of different approaches you can use, but which one suits your problem best?
We'll explain the difference between horizontal and vertical scaling and when you might prefer one over the other. We'll explore different approaches and discuss the pitfalls as well as the benefits of each. We'll go on a journey together, looking at an application that handles barely any concurrent users, to handling tens of thousands concurrently.
Unit testing helps us when writing any sort of application, however we often end up writing unit tests for small pieces of logic that don't really matter and sometimes miss out on the bigger picture. As a developer we tend to shy away from Web UI testing as the feedback loop is just too slow.
In this demo led presentation we will take a look at a toolset that gives us end-to-end testing to give us far faster feedback. As a developer you will be able to run UI tests before you commit your code to source!
Specification by Example (SBE), and the related practices of Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) and Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD), are effective techniques to collaboratively drive the implementation of agile stories, using test automation frameworks that blend acceptance tests with specifications and system documentation.
How do we get the right level of detail in specifications? How do we express good acceptance tests that are both readable and automated? How do we get long-term value from these artefacts as documentation?
