Sometimes it takes a little while for a good idea to catch on.
A student paper written in 1971 is just now starting to influence how we approach unit testing 40 years later.
This session will introduce mutation testing, the concept described in the student paper.
It will discuss the theory and research behind it and why it is now finally being used in main stream development in domains as diverse as banking, bio-tech, insurance and the control systems for the large hadron collider at CERN.
At the end of the session attendees will have a good understanding of the available tools and how they can benefit teams using TDD and even those that are not.
Turns out that it's me that guard the guards
