Why Testing Is Important And Where Do I Start?
Apps are getting more complex, clients have big expectations, and the world is growing quickly. But the idea of using a full blown testing framework feels daunting, so instead we do...nothing.
Testing our code is important, and only getting more important as time goes on. Between legacy code, technical debt, fear of the unknown, and other stressors, it can be challenging to figure out how to best test our applications.
In this talk we'll look at why testing is important, and how we can start. We'll cover a variety of techniques that work for well built OOP applications, legacy codebases that run crucial systems, and everything in between. Yes there are ways to test all of them! And without giving yourself a heart attack in the process!
