Getting the Testing Balance right, It sounds like a no-brainer, right? Everyone has unit testing nailed, umm, right…? In this talk, Russ Miles of Simplicity Itself takes things back to basics to examine why many still do not unit test and, even worse, use unit testing in extremely unproductive ways.
Diving through a brief litany of woe around his experiences in unit testing, Russ will then share the tools, techniques and hard-earned lessons he applies to write, communicate and organise his unit tests to make them as useful as possible to the future of the application.
