Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
At next month's Michigan eXtreme Programming Enthusiasts meeting I and another
XPer will be demonstrating the act of legacy testing and refactoring. To do
this, we have decided to make Squeak our target platform. Therefore, I am
putting out a call for suggestions on what needs tested and refactored in
Squeak. It can be in the basic image or in add-on packages.
Some background on the exercise might help you help me in finding what needs
tested. So here goes...
(+) we have about 1 (one) hour in which to do this exercise (which probably
equates to 30 - 40 minutes of coding)
(+) the pair of programmers will be two veteran XPers and testers, one of
which is a long time veteran of Smalltalk (my partner) and one of which is
fairly new to Smalltalk (myself)
(+) we would like to address one or more of the following:
(+) testing the untouchable (code that cannot be changed)
(+) testing the touchable (code that can be changed)
(+) testing the unexpected
(+) testing the expected
(+) etcetera, etcetera, etcetera
If we get far enough we will be more than happy to post a changeset of the
tests/refactorings we make.
Thanks in advance for your generosity and aid.
