Automating testing has the potential to greatly reduce unwanted regressions, warn you when your performance drops, keep you in line with coding standards, inform architectural decisions, and even create better conversations with your clients. It sounds like a great thing to use in the next sprint. Or maybe on the next project. Or maybe in your next job.

This presentations will cut through excuses that keep automated testing in the realm of future aspirations. Through a high-level survey of many types of automated testing we will see how it is never too late to add automated tests. In fact, it is often in the messiest, oldest, most technical debt-ridden projects where automated testing proves to be most valuable.

This presentation will discuss:
- Visual Regression Testing
- Test Driven Development
- Code Sniffing
- Performance and Accessibility audits
- Behat

Learning Objectives & Outcomes:
This presentation will walk through different phases of web development projects and suggest ways to introduce automated tests at each phase.
