Testing Essentials: Mock Objects Explained

Comments

The talk really helped drive the home the concept of isolation and the different types of "Mocks" that we are already using in out tests.

One more step along the path to unit testing. Great talk!

Really good session. Gave a really good explanation of why mock objects are needed and exactly how keep your tests in isolation and independent of any external system.

A very detailed explanation of the mock elements that coupled nicely with the @s_bergmann presentation I attended earlier.

I thought I knew it all and got introduced into xpmock! Great talk!

This was a great talk.

VERY thorough and to the point. The talk was engaging from minute one until the end. I've been to at least 5 talks on unit testing and this is the first one that went deeply into all the different kinds of test objects available to you (stubs, mocks, fakes, dummies, and spies) with relevant examples instead of theoretical use. Great job!

Great presenter with very detailed, high-quality slides and code examples!

Great presentation, very engaging, and best of all, ZF2 specific. Great stuff.

I'm new to testing, so this talk did a great job of describing a) what precisely unit tests are (and are not) b) why you want to use mocks and c) different kinds of "mocks" (test doubles) and when you want to use them. Very well presented and structured. I learned a lot.
