Are You Over-Testing?
Session scheduled at 1:30-2:20 in Room 1 (Johnson)
What is your code coverage? Why not 10% more or less? Is testing this feature more important than shipping the next? Many teams spend too much time and energy on testing the wrong things. In this session, an enterprise developer turned startup entrepreneur will dive into the costs and benefits of testing. You will learn about the organizational and social dynamics that drives teams to over-test. You will come away armed to convince your team, your manager, and your business to ship more and maximize test value. Check your dogma at the door and let’s ship some valuable software.
