Get an exclusive look behind the scenes into the Fooman extension kitchen, and discover the automated tests that help me write better code. You’ve heard it before – automated testing is easier than ever with Magento 2. Writing tests now will save you time and money later, and reduce the maintenance burden of extensions (which is basically a developer’s dream). But testing has a reputation for being complicated and it can be hard to know where to start.

It starts with choosing the right ingredients. This isn’t a one size fits all, ‘write tests for everything, 100% all of the time’ lecture. We’re going to get super real about which tests actually help, when to use different test types, and what to implement first.

Together we’ll cook up an example Magento 2 extension, looking at the relative effort and benefits of the following tests:

  • Static Tests
  • PhpUnit Tests
  • PhpSpec Tests
  • Integration Tests
  • Functional Tests

Whether you code Magento 2 sites or develop extensions, it’s easier to get started with automated tests than you might think.

This meeting is over, but you can still purchase the video.
