Spock is a groovy based testing framework that leverages all the “best practices” of the last several years taking advantage of many of the development experience of the industry. So combine Junit, BDD, RSpec, Groovy and Vulcans… and you get Spock!

This is a significant advancement in the world of testing.

This session assumes some understanding of testing and junit and builds on it. We will introduce and dig deep into Spock as a test specification and mocking tool. This is a workshop which requires a laptop that includes Java and an editor which includes the ability to run JUnit tests.
