For the month of October we have Iain Poulson (@polevaultweb) giving us a talk on automated testing. If you are interested in making your working life easier and reducing the number of times you wake up in a cold sweat thinking about that thing you just deployed, this might be the talk for you!
We'll be at our new venue at County Gates House, with some pizza and drinks, and we'll be heading down to the Libertine just over the road, afterwards for a post-talk discussion. Please register a ticket and come along!
Iain Poulson: Automated Acceptance Testing with Codeception Raw
One of the biggest drains on our development team is manually performing acceptance tests for each release of our WordPress plugins. It's time consuming and expensive, in terms of both man hours and time taken away from actual product development. Manual testing like this just doesn't scale.
So what's the solution? Hire a tester or a testing team? Still not scalable. This talk covers how it is possible to automate 99% of manual tests with the testing framework Codeception, and how we are integrating it into our testing process.
Ways to stay up to date
