Some of us come to software careers with engineering degrees, others find our way through bootcamps and night classes, and more still are self-taught do-it-yourselfers. No matter what your educational path to software development, one question unites us all. "How do I make sure any of this actually works?" This talk, an introduction to a wide variety of testing topics, seeks to arm attendees with enough practical examples to be successful now and enough theory to keep growing. Topics covered include: Unit Testing, Behavior Testing, Double Loop Refactoring & more.

Solid, engaging intro to the "why" of testing. Unfortunately a failed demo (I've been there) distracted from the "how". Throwing a larger percentage of time behind the implementation details of the BDD double loop would probably allow folks, newly excited about testing, to get a bit more actionable intel out of the talk.

Definitely a great eye opener for a lot of people.
He encouraged me to keep doing what and how I do my testing.
We got cut short on the double-loop, but I am sure I can figure it out myself.

A bit unconventional in the delivery but lots of useful information. I'm sure the demo would have been great and with a little more preparation in the future I'm sure it'll go without a hitch.

The right amount of professionalism, urgency, and wit when it comes to the very-necessary part of development. Tim is a compelling speaker with an engaging style.
