After almost ten years of working on ScalaTest, there is still lots of potential for improvement of the library. In this talk, Bill Venners will share what he has come to believe is the essence of testing, and learn to evolve ScalaTest as a result. You will discover the propositional and predicate logic and explore how they relate to testing. He will also share where he thinks property-based testing fits in the big picture, and give demos of some new and exciting features currently being developed for ScalaTest and Scalactic.

The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
