Continuous Integration Efforts Get Easier with Drupal 8

The following is a repost of an article I did for Promet Source.

Drupal 8 features unit level testing which will improve Promet's Continuous Integration practices.

At MidCamp (Midwest Drupal camp), I found out a really fascinating thing about Drupal 8: Support for PHPUnit is going to be part of the base distribution. This means a great deal to Solutions Architects and Developers at Promet because we have been striving to integrate automated tests into our build. Perhaps you remember from my talks or previous posts, number four of my 10 Principles of Continuous Integration is "Self-Testing Build". This makes Drupal a much more sought-after platform for shops looking to fully embrace Continuous Integration.

Testlink and Gherkin

Yesterday I did some major studying on Gherkin and trying to figure out how it would integrate into our current workflow at work. In a meeting we had on Thursday, all the players involved agreed that test-cases at the beginning of a story would be beneficial. I've been through this before when I was a QA lead, and yes, Developers tend to do a lot better job coding when they know what QA is going to be testing for. Now I'm on the Development side, looking back at the QA side and trying to help out.
