Why is setting up automated testing so complicated?
You know the drill...it's time to get that codebase tested before it hits production servers. So you go to your CI provider, connect your repository, and then spend the rest of the day (or more) trying to get the damn thing to run. And it happens. Every. Single. Time.
- "What's even installed on this build image?"
- "Can I run my tests against an actual database?"
- "Why are my tests passing locally but failing in CI?"
- "Is my build done, yet?"
Each project steals precious hours of your life, time you could be working on cool new features instead of debugging cryptic errors.
