  • Thorsten Frommen: An Introduction to Unit Testing (for WordPress)

    Thorsten Frommen: An Introduction to Unit Testing (for WordPress)

    WordCamp London 2018Speaker: Thorsten Frommen

    October 5, 2018 — Thorsten first provides a high-level overview of unit testing in general, and classifies it in terms of test level, and testing methods and techniques. He then explores and explains different possible units. The second part of the talk is dominated by one of the key principles of unit testing: testing in isolation. What is it? How can it be done? What is this mocking that pops up here and there? Next, Thorsten shows different unit test examples, involving both PHP and JavaScript, and highlighting different (yet simplified) aspects of real-life code. Thorsten concludes with a few tips for writing good unit tests.

    Vladimir Roudakov: Testing any day: guide to end to end test driven WordPress projects

    WordCamp Brisbane 2017Speaker: Vladimir Roudakov

    August 8, 2018 — Do you get notified if some crucial functionality on your website was changed or broken?
    Is automated testing part of your daily routine or deployment process?
    If not, then you are risking of losing parts of your website or even entire project.
    Testing is no longer developers realm and everybody should get involved and get the benefits of test driven development.

  • Rian Rietveld, Sami Keijonen: Testing Web Accessibility

    Rian Rietveld, Sami Keijonen: Testing Web Accessibility

    WordCamp Europe 2018Speakers: Rian Rietveld, Sami Keijonen

    August 6, 2018 — People use different ways to interact with the web. Users navigate for example with a keyboard only or with their voice. To make this work properly, it ‘s necessary that the design, code and content is properly set up, accessible for all devices and users. How do you test the accessibility of a design, code and content of a web project? What are the guidelines to test against?

    We will go through the different ways to use the web, which guidelines to use, what to look out for when checking for accessibility errors and which checks and tools you can use to help you test. We will also discuss a setup for automated testing. Bring your laptop and join in.

    This workshop is for people who develop, design and write content, of all levels.

  • K Adam White: What We Forget to Test

    K Adam White: What We Forget to Test

    WordCamp Europe 2018Speaker: K. Adam White

    July 12, 2018 — Our project has 100% test coverage; we have end-to-end tests, unit tests, manual testing scripts—and my colleague can’t get any of it working!?

    Poorly-written issues or out-of-date local installation steps can ruin a project, but when we think of testing we forget about the processes that surround our code. So how can we hold our workflows, onboarding steps and communication to the same rigorous standards of quality as our codebases? By applying that mentality to the issue trackers, READMEs and wikis we already have, we can save ourselves and our teams from communication and process errors and get back to making websites!

    Giuseppe Mazzapica: Testing WordPress… without WordPress

    WordCamp Rome 2017Speaker: Giuseppe Mazzapica

    April 27, 2018 — One of the most known leitmotif for people into code quality assurance is: “run unit tests in isolation”.

    To apply this principle to code written for WordPress will bring us to write tests to be ran without loading WordPress.

    The talk will mostly pivot on real-world examples of unit-testing WordPress plugins in isolation.

  • George Childs: Usability Testing Workshop

    George Childs: Usability Testing Workshop

    WordCamp Birmingham 2017Speaker: George Childs

    January 11, 2018 — “Q: What could be confusing about your website?
    A: You’ll know when you test it.

    Successful businesses budget thousands of dollars to improve and maintain the usability of their websites, but you can get the main benefit of that for free today. “”Easy to use”” is a key reason people choose your product, recommend it to friends, and come back. Websites that are easier to use generate more revenue, period.

    This session will give you a fresh pair of eyes, or rather, three fresh pairs of eyes as you test your own website on three first-time users.

    First, you’ll learn how to design and test for usability:
    Can you make something so intuitive that it feels easy to a first time user?

    Second, you’ll put it into practice by testing your website on other workshop participants, watching to see what confuses them.

    Finally, we come back together and discuss how to fix any problems you found.

    This session is for Usability beginners, but even UX professionals will benefit from the pool of free test users. A good time will be had by all.”

    December 7, 2017 — If you are a theme, plugin or core developer/designer you need to test your work for accessibility errors, but how to do this and what guidelines to follow (like: what is WCAG 2 AA)?

    In this talk I will give you an overview of useful test tools, how to use them and how to integrate testing your development workflow. Also, I will give you tips on additional testing that can’t be automated, like using your site with only keyboard.
