Tutorial Day

Test legacy apps with Behat

Friday 2nd October AM

Are you working with a legacy application? Whether you inherited it or if the project just grew out of proportion over the years and just the thought of testing brings a new layer of nightmares in mind, you can take a sigh of relief. All is not lost. Keep calm and use Behat. This tutorial will show you another way to test spaghetti code without the need to refactor as you would normally do with unit tests. Instead, we will use scenarios - written in a language the customer understands - to test if the application 'behaves' as expected. In this tutorial, participants will: 1. Learn to configure/install behat 2. Learn about seeders 3. Use scenarios to test a legacy application
