Testing, 1-2-3

July 17, 2013

It’s easy to say that I test everything before it leaves the shop. I’m the programmer, after all. But with complex platforms like WordPress, where drop-in components, widgets, and themes may all come from different vendors, it’s easy to lose track of who’s responsible for testing what. Read More …
