 Box Tech Talk: Psychology of Testing

by Miško Hevery

Imagine you are an evil developer and you want to write hard-to-test code. What do you do? Would you declare everything private? Put everything in one big method? Give nondescript names?

Turns out none of that is hard to test, but some things which we do every day are. Will writing tests cost you double the development time? How can writing more code be faster? Is testing really just for QA?

Find these answers and more at Miško Hevery's talk on the Psychology of Testing.

Food and drinks will be provided

Parking available next door, at 4410 El Camino Real, Los Altos
