In this talk we'll explore methods of speeding up the test suite so that developers can be confident about the code they've written before they share it with the team. We'll start with quick cheap fixes (like optimizing your operating system), examine methods of writing tests that reduce their run time, and finally we'll move to more involved methods of multi-tasking your test suite to run on all the cores in your workstation and even to setting up a distributed testing cloud to run all your tests in parallel. We'll show the evolution of a test suite from its full run time of 13m 15s down to a number you won't believe! With no change to application code, and no reduction of test coverage, and it's all run on the same machine.
