June 19, 2019 — WordPress is a tightly-coupled system, representing over a decade and a half of ideas, decisions, technological shifts, and ideological struggles. There’s a lot of history to be parsed and often the simplest task can have unintended consequences.
Meanwhile, automated testing is one of the best ways to ensure software can be released regularly with high confidence and low risk of regressions. Sadly, the leap from “building WordPress plugins” to “building WordPress plugins with tests” is often viewed as a challenging hurdle. Luckily, there are tools to set up a test harness within an existing codebase with ease.
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.
June 10, 2019 — How often do we update something on our website, whether it’s a plugin, theme, or WordPress itself, and then move on without testing if our site still works? It probably happens more often than we’d like to admit. Of course we want our site to always work as expected, but there is just so much to test, we don’t have the time to do it all. Especially with what seems like daily updates. What if YOU didn’t have to test every little thing on your site to see if it’s working? This talk will discuss ways to automate testing of critical site functionality like contact forms, e-commerce checkout, and landing pages to ensure your site’s essential features are working as expected after every update.

January 6, 2019 — De meeste developers die ik ontmoet, hebben een hekel aan testen en alles wat daaraan gerelateerd is. Bugs fixen is simpelweg niet zo leuk als het bouwen van geweldige features. Hoewel het absoluut noodzakelijk is om features te hebben die jouw product de moeite waard maken, wil niemand een plugin of theme gebruiken dat volzit met bugs.
Elk development team heeft op zijn minst één teamlid nodig dat ervan houdt de boel te slopen. Ik was die persoon voor een lange tijd. In deze talk leg ik uit hoe ik features test, hoe ik bugs reproduceer en hoe ik ervoor zorg dat onze releases voldoen aan onze standaarden. Aan het eind van deze talk kijk je met een andere blik naar het belang van testen en jouw rol in dit proces.
December 14, 2018 — PHPUnit is the standard PHP testing framework, but getting it working with a WordPress plugin is challenging. If you ever wanted to start adding automated tests to your code, but did not know how and where to start, this talk is for you.
This presentation covers:
– brief introduction to unit and integration testing
– scaffolding a test suite for an existing WordPress plugin using WP-CLI
– refactoring the existing code to make it testable
– writing and running the first tests
December 7, 2018 — Every site seems to have that one feature that, if it breaks, would be a catastrophe. Lost profits and angry clients are something we all want to avoid.
In this session, we will explore the fundamentals of Behat and look at some example tests covering critical features of WordPress sites.
November 22, 2018 — Running tests with real users is critical for so many organizations, whether when evaluating MVPs or just as part of iterative updates. For an organization that already has embraced inclusive design, the next step is to integrate it into user testing by incorporating users with disabilities into your normal testing process. Note that this is not the same as accessibility testing. Ideally your accessibility work is done so that you can test a fully functional and accessible site/application for usability regardless of disability. I will discuss how to plan for and execute these sessions as well as pitfalls to avoid. Ideally you will walk away with high-level understanding of where to start.
