Fun With Fluent Testing

I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge on fluent testing which I have found the most effective way of writing a maintainable test suite is by using the fluent pattern. The fluent interface provides an object oriented way to write readable code. This is generally done using method chaining. Method chaining has your methods return the next set of actions that the user can do. So instead of trying to find that one class that you need in your test your IDE will tell you what you can do next. The other aspects of the fluent pattern includes inline assertions and abstractions. Doing this will keep your tests easy, concise and pleasant to the eye, without having to start over.

So I had everyone as soon as they learn something new to raise their hand with the goal to get everyone to learn something. I am fairly certain I got everyone to raise their hands at least once but it was hard to keep track of everyone.
