"Spring Into Unit Testing" - Venkat Subramaniam


Test Driving Development is a valuable technique that has several
However, unit testing is hard when your code has dependencies-this often
becomes a quick excuse to give up on TDD.
This example driven Zero Powerpoint (ZePo) presentation will help you
spring into unit test your Spring applications.
We will look at techniques to realize good unit testing,
and focus on effective use of mock objects and frameworks
to help you toss mock objects for your spring application.

In this presentation we will cover topics including:

* TDD Benefits
* Pragmatics of Unit Testing
* Mock Objects
* Hand tossing Mock
* Framework to create mock objects
* Unit Testing Spring Applications

Dr. Venkat Subramaniam, founder of Agile Developer, Inc.,
has trained and mentored thousands of software developers
in the US, Canada and Europe. He has significant experience
in architecture, design, and development of software applications.
Venkat helps his clients effectively apply and succeed with
agile practices on their software projects, and speaks
frequently at conferences.

He is also an adjunct faculty at the University of Houston
(where he received the 2004 CS department teaching excellence award)
and teaches the professional software developer series at
Rice University School of continuing studies.

Venkat has been a frequent speaker at the
No Fluff Just Stuff Software Symposia since Summer 2002.


"Spring Into Groovy" - Venkat Subramaniam


What do you get when you mix an agile, object-oriented,
dynamic language with a lightweight, flexible, and extensible framework?
You get a Groovier Spring. Spring allows you to develop using Groovy
as much as Java. Groovy brings some neat concepts to the Java Platform
that is hard to realize directly through the Java language.
Using these capabilities can lead to elegant and easier Spring

In this presentation we will cover topics including:

* Strengths of Groovy
* Using Groovy in Spring
* Configuration
* Bean Development
* Deployment
* How it fits in

*** AGENDA ***

5:30 - 6:00 p.m. Food, and Networking.
6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Basic Concepts
7:00 - 7:15 p.m. Announcements
7:15 - 8:30 p.m. Main Presentation

We will be meeting at the Auraria Higher Education Center (AHEC)
located at 900 Auraria Parkway in room 320C of the Tivoli Center.
The campus is adjacent to the Pepsi Center on the North side and
Colfax on the South Side.

Here's a link to the Campus Map followed by the link to the PDF:

We are closest to the Pepsi Center for this month's meeting,
so if you are taking the Light Rail you may want to get off at
the Pepsi Center/Six Flaggs stop and then head South and
go across Auraria Parkway to the Tivoli.
If you get off at the Colfax and Auraria stop,
walk North to the Tivoli Center along Main Street.
There is also ample parking in this area (cost is $5.00) if you're
If you are driving, take Auraria Parkway to across from the Pepsi
Center and head South.
There is a parking lot on one side and a parking structure on the other.

Here is an on-campus map that shows the Tivoli Center in the
North end of Campus near 9th & Auraria marked with a red star:
