Cocoa Units Frequently Asked Questions

Here you can find some answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the Cocoa Units Project. If you can't find an answer to your question, feel free to contact us, and we'll try to get back to you as soon as possible.

What is the main goal of the Cocoa Units project?

The major goal of the Cocoa Units Project is to create comprehenisve regression tests for every Objective-C API in Apple's Cocoa frameworks for Mac OS X, thus yielding a library of example code for every public method in every Cocoa class, as well as helping to find bugs in Apple's frameworks.

I would like to help out, but I'm afraid I don't have enough time. How much time does it take to participate?

Setting up the project for the first time should take less than 15 minutes. Writing unit tests for the project takes approximately 5 minutes per test. We would like for you to commit at least 20 tests per week, which should take a little over an hour and a half of work.

I've only recently started learning Cocoa. Can I still help with the project?

The Cocoa Units project is a great place for beginners to learn the Cocoa APIs. If you have some programming experience and take a look at the code all ready submitted in the project, you'll probably be ready to write unit tests within an hour. Better yet, the project will help you become familiar with the classes in the Cocoa frameworks. By participating, you actually learn Cocoa through experience!
