    (02:30) - Going too far with interfaces

    (04:45) - A discussion with payment gateways

    When you're writing a test it can be so tempting to just "tweak" some app code to make it easier to write that test, but we discuss why that might not be a good idea. We also talk about some app changes while writing tests that are beneficial to the overall project.

    (00:00) - Sometimes changing code makes testing easier

    (01:30) - Different types of code changes

    (02:45) - An example with Laravel jobs

    (04:30) - A time when it's okay to change code while testing

    (08:50) - Avoid problems by writing tests earlier

    (09:30) - Silly bit
    Don't "compromise" on testing. See how we can help level up your Laravel project.
