Writing tests for Backdrop

Block B - Slot 5 - Oct 2021

October 22, 2021 - 2:00 pm America/Los_Angeles

(2:00PM - Pacific Time USA)

Testing is an important part of the development process for Backdrop. Every new feature added to core needs to have a test to make sure that it does not get accidentally broken by changes in the future.

In this session, I will be going over the basics of how Backdrop's testing framework, Simpletest, operates and how to make a basic test for your own code. After that, we can go over any questions you may have or discuss problems people have run into in the past.
