We are all familiar with example-based testing, as typified by TDD and BDD. Property-based testing takes a very different approach, where a single test is run hundreds of times with randomly generated inputs.

Property-based testing is a great way to find edge cases, and also helps you to understand and document the behaviour of your code under all conditions.

This talk will introduce property-based testing and show how it works, and why you should consider adding it to your arsenal of testing tools.
