Now it’s NHibernate with Stephen Bohlen, who is aiming to cramming in all (kinda…) of the screencast on www.summerofnhibernate.com in 4 hours.
I think I’ll just sit back and try to learn this, because this guy is probably paid by the word :)
OK – closing in on the end. I really enjoyed this presentation but it would have benefitted from being longer, a whole day. It felt a bit rushed and we didn’t get as far as I would have reached. Although the material covered was great and well presented. And now I always have the www.summerofnhibernate.com to run back to.
I learned something about TDD and unit tests. Always ask:
“What can we safely assert?”
And the answer should be:
“Only the values I’ve set in the test code”
This is especially useful doing “unit tests” against the database (ie. integration tests).
If you write a test that searches for people with first name equal “FIRST NAME”, the only thing you safely can check that returned people contains is that first name equal “FIRST NAME”.
