Property based testing in practice

Xavier F. Gouchet

On paper, everyone agrees that tests are important. And yet, more often than not, tests are neglected. In the rare case where we take the time to write them, more often than not it’s considered a cumbersome task, and given less attention than the "real code". This leads to a lot of code smell being written in tests, one of which is using hardcoded values.

Tests are often as important, if not more so, as the code that will be published on the Play Store. This workshop will start with describing a productive mindset when writing tests, followed by an in-depth presentation of what Property based testing and Fuzzy testing are, with hands-on exercises to let attendees understand how to apply this concept to any existing Android codebase.
