In this video, Meaghan Lewis encourages learners to work together as a team to create process around test development. Set standards for things like when tests will be written throughout the development cycle, how tests will execute, and when automation will be complete.
- Various types of tests are implemented at different points…within the software delivery life cycle.…Having processes in place about when to write and run tests…can be helpful.…In terms of writing tests, unit tests are completed…during development.…Ideally, test driven development, or TDD,…is used to write tests before writing code,…and then ensures that the code written works as expected…once the test passes.…Integration tests should be written during development…as well.…However, features must be completed enough…to be able to test components working together.…
UI testing can start during development,…but cannot be completed until the feature to be tested…is finished with development.…For any type of test,…decide when in the development life cycle…they should be automated.…It also makes sense to think about when to run automation.…Determine how tests will be executed…both locally and with continuous integration.…Ideally, before making code changes,…engineers on the team should run tests locally…and ensure that everything is passing.…
