A Complete Guide to Optimizing Slow Tests

Why we wrote this guide

  • Makes developers lose focus: slow tests are distracting and make people squander precious creative energy.
  • Slows the development cycle: release and deployment goals are missed, hurting the organization’s competitive edge.
  • Dampens feedback: since tests do not run as often, it takes longer to find errors.
  • Increases costs: a slow CI/CD pipeline is more expensive to operate. Time is money!

Who is it for

  • Developers of every skill and seniority level as testing are an inseparable part of their lives.
  • CTOs and Directors of Engineering who want to find the best way of shipping faster by optimizing the test suite and CI/CD pipelines.
  • Engineering teams who want to get the most benefit of Test-Driven Development (TDD) and Behavior-Driven Development (BDD).
