2nd ExpertTalks in Porto: More Tests, Less Work + Functional Wars

February 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

ExpertTalks are coming back to Porto for the second edition. We will be presenting two technical talks, described below:

MORE TESTS, LESS WORK

Writing tests can be tricky. How do you ensure appropriate coverage yet keep things straightforward and maintainable? Generative (or property-based) testing frameworks exist to reinforce your tests with hundreds of randomised checks, but they require changing your test design mentality. This talk introduces fast-check and its underpinnings, and suggests strategies to help you make the most of it immediately.

Luís Rodrigues, Senior Software Engineer @ Equal Experts

FUNCTIONAL WARS: EPISODE 1 – THE FUNCTOR MENACE

Category theory is hard, but it is hardly essential to do functional programming. Nevertheless, understanding certain concepts will help the non-mathematicians of us to better leverage the power that functional programming gives us.
This talk is not a category theory tutorial, but instead tries to present some of these concepts in a more approachable way for programmers.

Vítor Castro, Engineering Lead @ Equal Experts

Location will be confirmed on the week before the event.
