5 Unit Testing Facts I Wish I Knew 10 Years Ago

Getting started with unit tests should be simple – it is just a matter of writing code to test other code. If that is right why so many talented developers fail implementing unit tests in their daily job. I have started using unit tests 8 years ago and failed miserably. It took me 2 years and the right company to start over and learn how to use unit tests and TDD as development tools. However, it was not always clear sailing and as I progresses I found more than my share of pitfalls than blind alleys as well as a fair amount of successes. In this talk, I will cover the non-trivial facts I learnt over the years about unit testing and the tips that I use to this day.

A Software Developer Guide to Working With AWS

Cloud computing is the future! Cloud computing helps reduce development times, grow your infrastructure with your business and perform tasks you could only dream of from the comfort of your own keyboard. But it’s not all fun and games, one could get lost in the endless list of available services and on top of that there are architecture, design and security considerations that change the way you write your code. In this session I’m going to teach everything you need to know when starting with Amazon web services from creating a new account, securing it and using the services you need to get the job done.
