Magento Test Automation: My Journey
Wrapping your head around (unit) testing in Magento development and getting benefit from it has always been hard, especially if you do not have previous experience with test driven development. I was already familiar with it and still had a bad time!
I am going to share my 6 year and ongoing journey with automated testing in Magento, with ups and downs and what I have learned over time. There will be dark confessions and maybe surprising conclusions.
The talk should also show you a way to start with test automation and test driven development without losing your mind. Maybe you will actually enjoy it in the end. I do!
This talk is targeted at developers and companies who would like to get into automated testing with Magento but are unsure how to start, and those who already do it but struggle with issues, or who want to improve their tests.
