Why do you write your tests like that?

We discuss two "interesting" patterns we've observed in a number of Laravel projects. Let's take a step back and think about why we write tests the way we do.
  • 1:06 - One weird pattern we’ve seen in Laravel project tests
  • 2:23 - Can you explain why you’re doing this?
  • 3:50 - “It’s more readable”
  • 5:55 - Principle: learn a thing, do a thing, dissect a thing
  • 6:30 - Is it okay to have code duplication in tests?
  • 8:20 - How tests are different from application code
  • 11:16 - Don’t add application code just for your tests
  • 13:06 - Silly bit
