June 18, 2020 — A proper investment strategy generally involves diversifying where you put your money. You try to manage risk so it’s optimized for where you are and where you are trying to go. Automated tests require a similar diversification in order to be a proper investment against bugs, defects, technical debt, and the dreaded 911 OMG BBQ ticket.
Let’s explore various types of automated tests, the tools at our disposal, and how a testing strategy can help you succeed.
January 2, 2020 — On entend régulièrement parler de tests unitaires, de tests d’intégration ou même de tests « end-to-end ». Que sont-ils? Comment peut-on s’en servir pour nos développements avec WordPress? Dans cet atelier d’initiation, je vous propose de mettre en place votre toute première suite de tests automatisés.
December 19, 2019 — We live in a world of continuous integration, continuous delivery, version controlled code and configuration. Yet when it comes to delivering content we are relying on doing all publishing straight to the production environment and hoping it works, editing the live document to fix issues we only find once they are in production. I propose there is a better way.
Let’s build our content on our development instances the same way we develop code and configuration. Then using the power of Github, WP-CLI and Automated Testing tools like Behat, let’s professionally deploy our content to production will full confidence it works as intended. Let’s give editors better tools to build better content in a word of Gutenberg while saving anyone the need to overwrite the production database ever again.
WP-CLI for generating content
Connecting Github and your WordPress site
Leveraging multiple environments
Behaviorally testing content
November 19, 2019 — This talk introduces the fundamentals of automated testing, especially within the context of WordPress. After developing an understanding why automated testing is so critical, attendees will learn how to begin testing their plugins and themes, using features found both in PHPUnit and the WordPress core testing framework, to build and release quality software.
