FreeBSD Developer Summit: ATF

Thursday, May 13, 2013 from 1:30pm to 4:30pm

Overview

The Automated Testing Framework (ATF) package is a collection of libraries to simplify the creation of test programs in a variety of languages. With FreeBSD growing more architectures, platforms, features and interfaces, it's increasingly more difficult to not break something, somewhere. Having unit tests is a good way of managing the quality of the source code and ATF is perceived to be a good infrastructure to use.
