Use Testing to Develop Better Software Faster

Use Testing to Develop Better Software Faster

Testing doesn’t always get the attention it deserves in software development. Many developers claim to be bad at it, or are just not that interested. (These may or may not be related.)

As developers, our job is to deliver working software. With the shift to CI/CD and the move to the cloud, the need to have the right feedback at the right time only increases. There are many ways that testing can help us with that. Not only can testing help us verify our solution and prevent us from breaking things, it can also help us design our software, find flaws in our architecture and come up with better solutions. In this talk I will highlight some of the many ways that testing can help you to develop better software faster.
