Testing Your Testing Strategy

'End-to-end tests are more valuable than unit tests.' 'You should always use Test-Driven Development.' 'Testing helps you release faster.' Testing is often spoken of in sharp truths like these, but the reality for most developers is often a lot more fuzzy. Do these recommendations actually make sense for you?

In this talk, we’ll take a step back and discuss how you can develop a testing strategy that fits your specific team and project. We’ll question some popular assumptions, talk about criteria to evaluate testing approaches, and give you ideas to make your development workflow more efficient without losing confidence in your software.
