    Ajit Bohra: StoryBook – Building, Testing & Documenting Components

    WordCamp Udaipur 2019Speaker: Ajit Bohra

    December 25, 2019 — With Gutenberg, we are talking more about React and it’s component-based development. Breaking down the app into component helps in better organization and reuse. But growing components can quickly become overwhelming and error-prone. Storybook comes to the rescue to help you build components in isolation and test for various use cases. Also, it serves as centralized documentation for the team. The talk will help you understand what is a Storybook and how it can help you and what are its various features. A quick dive into setting up and writing stories.

  • Andrew Taylor: Testing Business Critical Features With Behat

    Andrew Taylor: Testing Business Critical Features With Behat

    WordCamp Montreal 2019Speaker: Andrew Taylor

    December 25, 2019 — 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.

    However, manually testing end-user experience on each code change can be tedious and time-consuming.

    In this session, we will explore the fundamentals of Behat, a PHP-based acceptance testing framework, and look at some example tests covering critical features of WordPress sites.

    Andrew Taylor: The Benefits of Testing and Automation

    WordCamp Seattle 2018Speaker: Andrew Taylor

    December 2, 2019 — Modern development is complex, with lots of tools to turn the code we write into the code used by the user’s browser. This can be as simple as minifying assets or as sophisticated as downloading dependencies, turning source code into production code, and running automated tests.

    In this session, we will look at the top benefits gained from adopting automation and testing to optimize workflow. Whether you’re a developer wondering why you should try automation in the first place or a business owner wondering why you should let your team spend time on adopting a new process when the current one “just works” we’ll have answers for you!

  • Steve Grunwell: Confidently Testing WordPress

    Steve Grunwell: Confidently Testing WordPress

    WordCamp Dayton 2019Speaker: Steve Grunwell

    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.

    Scott DeLuzio: Automated Testing of Site Functionality

    WordCamp Phoenix 2019Speaker: Scott DeLuzio

    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.

  • Caroline Geven: Het belang van testen – oftewel - waarom ik het leuk vind om jouw code te slopen

    Caroline Geven: Het belang van testen – oftewel – waarom ik het leuk vind om jouw code te slopen

    WordCamp Nijmegen 2018Speaker: Caroline Geven

    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.
