Topic: Unit Testing -

Love It or Hate It, You Should Be Doing It Automatically

Everyone agrees unit testing is a good idea but only a handful of businesses really do it successfully.

Why? Because it can be time consuming and costly.

One of the ways you can address both of these problems is automation. This presentation talks about why you need to be unit testing and how you can make it succeed.

Included will be some of the best practices of unit testing, case studies of success and failure, and some demonstrations of how automation can make a difference.

This is a follow-up to the talk done by Jeffrey Fredrick in March and will provide a hands-on demo.
