Unit Tests Aren't Enough!
Trotter Cashion (Mashion, LLC)
Your QA cycle is broken and unit tests aren't enough to fix it. QA takes too long, is too error prone, and never covers as much as we need. To really do QA right, you need automated integration and acceptance testing tools like Cucumber. In this talk, we'll discuss why automated integration testing is a necessity, how you can do it, and why your coworkers and boss will thank you for it.
11:50am-12:30pm (40m) Tools & Techniques
Testing from Unit to Functional, Integration to Acceptance
Rabble Evan Henshaw-Plath (cuboxsa.com) et al
This talk will be about what's happening in testing. The general argument is that we're moving away from testing units towards testing functionality through integration testing. Improved mocking libraries, scripted and emulated browsers, fixtures, and frameworks means that we can effectively test that a system works.
10:00am-10:40am (40m) Tools & Techniques
Practical Concurrency
