WordPress and Automated Testing, Really?!

A session at Day Camp 4 Developers PHP Master Series III

Friday 20th December, 2013

10:10am to 11:10am

Did you know that WordPress has an automated test suite? It contains well over 1500 integration tests and growing. However one of the primary culprits of WordPress is in the quality of its plugins. Most plugins don't have an automated test suite you can run to verify all features are working as expected, and fail gracefully.

In this talk, Ptah will introduce you to automated testing in WordPress using PHPUnit. We will cover concepts like unit testing, integration testing and end-to-end testing with examples in WordPress. You will leave the talk equipped with practical knowledge and ready to start adding an automated test suite to your plugins.
