Talk: Refactoring using Codeception by Jeroen van Dijk

You must have heard from unit testing… if not, then this really is talk for you! If you do know unit testing, then you might also have had that hurdle… where to start? And in the end, ending up having little unit tests for your application despite your efforts. And then that change request comes in… right on that complex piece of code. How are you going to refactor while maintaining all those ‘undocumented’ business rules? In this talk I’ll show how Codeception can leverage the developer to refactor visuals aspects of an application, maintaining backwards compatibility on API changes and even can assist in moving to a whole different server infrastructure.
