Summary
Jessica Kerr shows the charm of autogenerated test data, the beauty of expressing only what matters, and the challenge of stating what you need without repeating the code under test using ScalaCheck. Property-based testing isn't only for more tests with less code. It's about constraining your implementation in all the ways that matter and fewer of the ways that don't.
