Ask any developer out there and they will likely tell you that automated testing is the “proper” way to do things now a days. If you aren’t writing your code using Test-Driven Development (TDD) or Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) you are likely doing it wrong. With this being the new reality why is the learning curve so steep and what is TDD and BDD anyway?!
During this talk I hope to demystify the buzz word heavy area around Automated Testing. We will walk through what you should be paying attention to and what you can ignore. We will explore why implementing automated testing gives you more confidence as a developer. And finally, I will guide you through what to focus on in order to write effective tests.
If you are struggling to even start writing automated testing or if you are a vet but still struggle from time to time to write meaningful tests this talk is for you.
