Announcing: LispCast Intro to clojure.test

Sign up for weekly Clojure tips, software design, and a Clojure coding challenge.

Summary: The next course will be about clojure.test. Sign up to be notified when it is published.

Last week I mentioned my new course format, and I also teased at more announcements. Well, it's a course on clojure.test, the Clojure testing library that comes built in with Clojure.

I chose clojure.test as my next topic for a number of reasons. The main reason is that I think it's a good idea to begin with the fundamentals. I have a long list of topics, and testing was as good as any. It's also a video that opens doors to other topics, including testing using Midje, test.check, and simulation testing.

The course is called LispCast Intro to clojure.test. clojure.test is not a big library, but it's important to know. This course will teach you how to use the library and conventions around testing that might not be so obvious. For instance, how to name your testing namespace.

The course is built in the new format, and it's shorter than my previous courses. It's common for someone to tell me how much they like my courses. My first question is always "Did you finish them?". And it disturbs me how many people say "no". They like the course but they don't finish. So I'm doing smaller courses that are easier to fit into your day and finish. I expect to make more, smaller courses from now on. And Intro to clojure.test will be the first.

And now that that announcement is done, I must tease you with just one more announcement coming later this week. If you don't want to miss it, sign up for the mailing list below. You'll be the first one to know when clojure.test is coming out and what that cliffhanger announcement is.
