                   Chicago Perl Mongers Meeting Announcement
       Topic: Perl Unit and Functional Testing
   Presenter: Kent Cowgill
   Date/Time: Tuesday, September 25th, 2007, 7:00 PM
    Location: Performics, 12th Floor, 180 N. LaSalle, Chicago, IL
        RSVP: By noon on Sept. 25th to "pkrawczyk" with "doubleclick.com"

Kent will be talking about getting started with unit and functional testing
using everyone's favorite language, Perl.

Additionally, he will talk about code quality, test coverage, and making
things a lot easier on the person doing the testing using a Makefile.

Finally, Kent will talk about how he used Test::Builder::Module to create
a custom test module in order to be able to unit test the code in use at
his job, which is a template framework that combines Perl code with HTML,
making traditional unit testing rather difficult.

Kent Cowgill has been a Perl programmer and system administrator for over a
dozen years.  Recently, he's written a large test suite for a legacy system,
using reverse engineering, namespace manipulation and several Perl modules
(such as Test::MockObject, Devel::Cover and HTML::Lint).

As with all Chicago Perl Mongers meetings, everyone is welcome,
whether or not you consider yourself a member. We look forward to
seeing you there!
