Eric Meyer, 8th Light
Testing your applications is important! Writing good tests is just as important! This talk will be divided into two main parts. The first part will cover exactly what goes into a good test. The second part will cover the basics of two testing frameworks, OCDSpec and Objective C Slim. Objective C Slim is an acceptance testing framework, and for those of you familiar with Ruby and Rails, OCDSpec is a unit testing familiar with syntax inspired by Jasmine and Rspec. At the end of this talk, you should have no problem testing all of your future iOS applications.
