Søren Houen wants to give this talk

How we test

I gave a short lightning version of this at the 07.03.24 meetup. I would like to expand it into a full talk with more examples, considerations, and elaborations on "it depends".

Basically it is about what I consider good advice when doing Rails testing, for example:

  • Test the real thing as much as possible
  • Test is code. Code is debt
  • What is an efficient test?
  • How to write a good test
  • Given, When, Then
  • Tests paths: Happy and sad
  • Alternative test: Test one product concern
  • Why I prefer Minitest over RSpec
  • Example of an absolute train wreck of a test
