Getting Started with Unit Testing

In this session, Alison will teach us about writing and running unit tests in WordPress.

“What is a unit test,” I hear you ask? A unit test is a way for programmers to validate that the code they’ve written is serving its intended purpose and producing the expected results. There are many ways to test code, and this way happens to be a very, very good one. Check out our blog for more information on the benefits of unit testing, and the role it might better play in your business.

Alison will give us the “whys” and “whens” of creating unit tests for your WordPress project.
