About the Book
Long-time PHP testing advocate Chris Hartjes takes a look at one of the least-understood parts of testing computer software -- managing the expectations of people. In this book Chris draws on his experience of over a decade of helping developers build the skills needed to become good at testing and talks about how tests are written by people, not machines. His views on what to do when there are no tests but you want some, or what to do with a test suite nobody likes will challenge your thoughts on what testing is really about.
"Building Test-Driven Developers" covers:
- What is a "testing culture"
- Handling things when there are no tests
- Why testing should be "just part of the job"
- Dealing with tests nobody runs
- Does "Chicago vs. London" really matter?
- Dealing with difficult people
You need people skills to go along with all those great testing skills you've been building. Chris is here to help with those too!
