The more the tests, the longer the build. And when the build gets longer, the bugs take longer to fix, the features take longer to deploy.
A build should be less than five minutes long, all tests included. Now lets say, our test suite takes much longer than that. How to reduce its duration? Where to start?
David will present different strategies: Making some tests become useless, converting functional tests to unit tests, running tests in parallel, building projects in parallel, doing slow tasks only once, writing fast DBMS tests... Let's share dozens of tips to accelerate your test suite A LOT.
Beware! This presentation is targeted at lazy people and cheaters but also brave ones. Three approaches to combine for the best result.
