Last week at WPCampus Online I presented Automated Testing for EDU. This session was a high level overview of different types of automated testing and when to use them. I structured the presentation to show how automated testing can be added at different phases of a project’s life cycle, starting with old sites where motivation to add new processes may be low. I ended with the planning stage when tests can help define the project scope and goals. Along the way, I tried to dispel myths and excuses that can stop a team from using automated tests.
The WordCamp season starts back up in 2019 with WordCamp Phoenix, February 15-17. I got the chance to sit down with Pantheon Hero Roy Sivan, Senior Software Engineer at The Walt Disney Company who will be presenting Build Web Applications with Gutenberg in Phoenix. Here is a brief summary of what we talked about:
Today we’re happy to announce that Disaster Recovery is available for Pantheon Elite sites. While we can’t prevent disasters from happening, Pantheon has architected a high-availability (HA) solution with intelligent failover at the Global CDN edge layer to keep mission critical websites online in the event of a complete datacenter outage. Disaster Recovery is more than just technology— it includes onboarding, 24/7 support, and a guaranteed 99.99% uptime service level agreement (SLA).
