Though extensive knowledge about how to code a fancy Spring MVC application can impress a lot of folks, you'll need to add unit testing to your app to ensure proper functionality and stability. During this workshop we'll apply the unit testing knowledge you already have to a provided Spring application, testing our controllers, services, and DAOs. In addition, we'll make use of mock objects to "fake" the functionality of application components that aren't being directly tested.
I spent six years teaching introductory and advanced computer science to high school students in Omaha and Chicago, and have also worked as a full-time Java developer. As a teacher, I continually strive to support students in removing all perceived and actual barriers to learning highly sophisticated material.
I enjoy running and yoga, especially outdoors in the beautiful Chicago summer weather.
