Back when I was learning about how to test PHP code, I struggled to teach myself what I needed to know in order to succeed. Over the past 16 years (has it really been that long?!?) I’ve learned a lot about not just testing but about code and people. In this talk I want to share what I wished I knew back then so you don’t have to suffer like I did.

I appreciated this unique perspective on testing. The book recommendations were a very nice touch.

Your 16 years of experience are very insightful and I'm glad you shared your wisdom with us. I noted a few arguments that I could use to express my thoughts better and share this experience with my peers. I also enjoyed the delivery of the talk. Thank you.

Now i have to test


It was abso-grumpy awesome!

After this talk I will start implementing tests... I promise!

Chris really knows how to hold your attention and the examples he provided were great

Very personal and motivational! Provides a lot of food for thought not only on the topic of importance of testing, but generally about career choices.
