  • Mike Selander: A World Without Bugs

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Mike Selander

In this talk, we’ll cover the workflows, testing methods, and tools that you need to keep bugs from making it into production. Everything from automated QA testing to why you should create your own in-house frameworks. You’ll walk away with a more accurate picture on testing and the ability to work towards eliminating all the bugs on your next project.
