Automated Testing with SimpleTest

SimpleTest is a unit-testing framework written in PHP that is becoming an integral part of the Drupal development process. Whether you're hacking core, working on a pet module, or managing a complicated project, regular and proper use of unit tests in Drupal can lead to happy developers and code that glows with correctness.

This talk will tackle the following questions:

* What is unit testing, and why is it useful?
* When should it be used?
* How does SimpleTest work for site administrators?
* How do developers write tests?

That last question will involve walking through some example tests written for real modules.

(This will have to be during the first half of the day on Friday)
