Title: CardUnit: A Unit Testing Simulation

Speaker: David Kane

Time/Room: 4:00 PM/Sterling (Ascendum)

Abstract: It can be difficult for developers to find the motivation to write automated unit tests. This workshop introduces a simulation that can demonstrate the value of automated unit tests to identify and localize defects. In the simulation, participants will play the roles of programs and tests. We will discuss barriers to creating and maintaining unit tests, and how this simulation addresses those barriers.
