Resources from the January Meetup (TDD with Spock)

All in all I think we were around 17 people at the last meetup. Thanks all for coming, and big thanks to Data in Transit for hosting once again!

Our little improv pair programming with Spock was very fun, and we even learned a couple of new things ourselves on the way. Here is the code we ended up with during the meetup live coding:


The Spock tests are located in here.

If you want to have a look at the first implementation Daniel and I came up with, you can find it here (master branch):

Finding a new time to meet

After the January meetup in a week, we'll be looking for a new time of the month to meet regularly.

I've asked at Nerdhub.de, who are the closest thing to an authority on these things, and they say Tuesday is generally the day with the most free spots around the area.

So, here's the poll. It first lists possible Tuesdays, and then the remaining free Mondays:


Please check all options where you *can* participate. Thanks!

Bonn Agile Meetup - Januar 2013: Modern TDD with Spock

This time we'll get together to talk about one of the most recurring topics in agile circles: testing!

Daniel and Thomas have been switching a lot of unit tests from standard JUnit to the feature rich testing tool called Spock. This meetup they'll share some of their experiences.

Currently Spock can only test Java and Groovy code, but the talk should be interesting to anyone familiar with any xUnit testing tool, as many Spock features have and probably will be ported to other languages/test-frameworks.

Bonn Agile Meetup - November 2012: Learning

This is just a post to journal the last meetup we had in 2012. This was another bar meetup, with some fruitful discussions on how we acquire knowledge. I think we were six people in the end.
