How to Use and Abuse Autogenerated Unit Tests

How to Use and Abuse Autogenerated Unit Tests

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

When people think of autogenerated tests, unit tests, or testing in general, they often carry a lot of expectations about the state of the technology and about the value it should have. This talk goes into the details of what modern autogeneration can actually achieve and which unexpected needs it fulfills. The talk will be followed by a discussion of how autogeneration and assisted generation needs to evolve to meet the growing needs of Java developers.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

June 20, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
