If you’re eager, as I am, to get started with unit testing, I am very pleased to report that Ben Lobaugh (@benlobaugh) is speaking about this very topic at WordCamp Denver this weekend. If you have the opportunity, you should absolutely attend the event. I know you won’t be disappointed.
If you cannot attend, I have good news! Ben has written an incredible blog post about getting up-and-running with unit tests. In it he discusses briefly the merits of testing your code, how to install PHPUnit and the WordPress Testing Library, and even takes things to the next level with an intro to”continuous integration” (tests that run automatically every time you commit new code).
Ben’s post is a seriously great pre-requisite for this month’s session: WordPress Unit Testing. Once you’ve wet your appetite with Ben’s article you can satisfy your hunger learning from three more experts with live Q&A. If you haven’t gotten one already, you can save 20% on your ticket by purchasing it by Friday, Nov 15.
