There is lots of info out there on how to use testing tools but very little info on how to build your application in such a way that it can easily be tested. This session will cover strategies that can be used to shape your application in such a way that writing tests becomes easy instead of punishment detail.
Learn about loosely-coupled architectures, dependency injection and why your tests should never touch a real database or call a real web-accessible API during testing.
