As a follow-up to the discussion about slow tests in my recent post on testing anti-patterns, I ran across a wonderful blog post on the Shyp Engineering blog called Speeding up Javascript Test Time 1000x.

In the post, the authors give a number of reasons why it’s important that your tests stay fast. They then talk about the concrete steps they took to speed up their test suite.

All in all, it’s a post that’s well worth reading. It’s a concrete look into how and why to keep your tests running fast.
