Published October 23, 2012 in Technology

Back in 1999, Kent Beck popularized test-first development with his industry changing book eXtreme Programming Explained. Since that time, testing in our applications is not something that would be nice to have, but essential to inspire confidence, catch regressions, and encourage simple designs. However, since tests have become such a large percentage of our applications, they also are prone to code smells and various testing anti patterns.

In his talk, Kevin Faustino will go through various Testing AntiPatterns he has found in Rails projects.
