I’ve been doing some simple wordpress plugin development, but the plugin is starting to get a bit more complex and taking longer and longer to run through the manual tests I was doing. Time to switch to TDD and build up a suite of tests and get the code into testable shape.
To make it a bit more tricky I’m working on a chromebook, so want to try and do it all online – for free!
Found some useful blogs for doing TDD with wordpress:
Let’s see what happens
“A scenario is a concise description of a persona using a product to achieve a goal” (Cooper).
concise : short but complete; breadth instead of depth
product : assume the product (software or physical device) exists, even if it doesn’t
goal : the reason why we perform a task
Used to validate design, check assumptions.
Create a shared understanding of end users.
