acts_as_conference 2009: TATFT: The Layman's Guide
You've heard it a million times, "TATFT". So, how do you go from being someone who wants to test, to someone who actually tests all the time? Do you need a spiritual guide who can show you the intricacies of testing, and how it can make your code better? If so, you need "TATFT, the laymen's guide to getting it right the first time."
In this talk, I will go from evangelizing testing, to actually showing methods for making sure your code actually does what you think it does. I'll outline approaches and techniques to help you get your projects under control. Also, I'll even get a little bit of theory which will allow you to approach testing in a more "enlightened" way.
