Automated testing has become standard in the software business. Continuous Deployment is not possible without some means of verifying the software being deployed. Yet many developers, if not most, skimp on or completely skip testing for every excuse available. The main excuse is time. "We don't have time!"
In this talk, we'll go through some history of automated testing, the benefits, the tooling, and how to get it done in the same or shorter time as we would when not testing. We'll look at some hinders and possible time-consuming practices to avoid. We'll also see how it all relates to Umbraco 7 and 8 and what tools we have to get the job done.
Target audience: Technical
