How-To's IntelliJ IDEA LiveStream Livestreams Testing Tips & Tricks

Live Stream Recording – IntelliJ IDEA and JUnit: Writing, Finding, and Running Tests

What is the best way to write tests and keep your passion for coding? Check out the recording of our live stream ‘IntelliJ IDEA and JUnit: Writing, Finding, and Running Tests’ for inspiration!

Testing is crucial in the development process, as it helps ensure your application will work the way that it should well into the future. The task might seem monotonous and boring, but it doesn’t have to be – if you use JUnit and IntelliJ IDEA.

Our live stream with Christian Stein, a long-time member of the JUnit core team, will help you discover a more satisfying way to write tests. Christian spiced up the show with some real-life coding, where he had to cope with errors in real time and rapidly find solutions to make especially stubborn tests pass. Christian had a great time solving the puzzles, and it looked like our attendees enjoyed the demo, too.

Last but not least, the session encouraged several members of the audience to write their own tests. One of the attendees wrote: “So refreshing to see experts have the same problems as we do. Also, really nice to watch this; I already learned some things.” It is comforting to know that the live stream brought real value to our YouTube followers!

If you didn’t have a chance to attend the session, check out the video recording and Christian’s GitHub repo.

Happy testing, and see you next time!

Modules, modules everywhere
And class-path hell did shrink
Modules, modules everywhere
Let `sun.misc.Unsafe` sink
