Not every project already has a test suite. If the project you're working on doesn't, then you need to add one before going any further.
- [Instructor] The first thing that we need to investigate … about our project's test suite … is whether or not it even has one. … If it does have one, great. … We'll cover the improvements that we can make to it … in further videos. … But, if it doesn't have one, then it's important … for us to create one. … Creating a test suite may sound daunting, … but it really doesn't have to be. … You might be imaging creating a test suite … with a high degree of test coverage, … but that's not a reasonable goal … when you're just getting started. … Instead, we need to focus on creating … an automated test suite that contains just one test. … Why are we starting so small? … Well, there are a lot of small, but important, details … that we'll sort out along the way … towards creating a test suite with just a single test in it. … First, we need to decide which testing framework … we're going to use. … The language that you're working in … might have a bunch of different choices to choose from, … which is how it is in the Ruby ecosystem. …
