99-Minute Workshops, the brand new addition to Ministry of Testing’s learning platform available only to our Pro Members.
Our short, instructor-led, workshops are the perfect way to explore and experiment with new ideas, keep updated with new tools and approaches to testing. Broadening your understanding of what it means to be a valuable member of a modern software development team.
Learn how approval testing can be more effective than traditional assertion-based test automation with Emily Bache on the 3rd of February 2021, 1 PM (New York, US Time) with the workshop Approval Testing.
After this workshop, you will be able to
- describe the characteristics of Approval Testing,
- describe Text-based and Pixel-based approaches,
- use a different tools to evaluate approval test failures and approve new results,
- use the Approval framework to write test cases for existing code where a Printer already exists and
- compare Approval testing with assertion-based testing and explain in which situations it has advantage.

What You'll Learn
By the end of this workshop you'll be able to:
- Use a diff tool to evaluate approval test failures and approve new results when appropriate.
- Use the Approvals framework to write test cases for existing code where a Printer already exists.
- Compare Approval testing with assertion-based testing and explain in which situations it has advantages.
- Describe Text-based and Pixel-based approaches.
- Describe the characteristics of Approval Testing.
About This Workshop
- The expected result is hard to calculate in advance, but easy to verify afterwards.
- The expected result has many aspects and details which are a lot of work to assert individually.
- You want to get high regression test coverage for existing code relatively quickly.
This workshop has been designed to be attended live. If you can’t make the scheduled time, it will stay available to replay in CrowdCast for 7 days. To get the most out of it, we highly recommend you attend it live!
