User group meeting

There are so many types of testing nowadays! Code static analysis checks, unit testing, functional testing, front-end performance testing, load testing, visual regression testing. But which one shall I use in real life project with limited time and budget? There is no easy answer.

We will talk about many types of testing and what kind of projects you would need them. This talk is not going to be about comparing tools for testing but rather about principles of each testing. Specifically what you should take into account when starting thinking about introducing automated testing to your project and how you can achieve coverage with minimal efforts.

Also we will touch topic of how to set up flexible testing environment into your process, Continuous Integration techniques.

This is a technology agnostic presentation with a focus on concepts though we will be touching on systems such as Jenkins, Code Sniffer, PHPUnit, Drupal Test Runners, Behat, Selenium, JMeter, Speed Curve, backtrac.io
