Multilevel Drupal Teams or Whom to fire first?

The session will be about challenges in multi-level Drupal teams, which include Juniors, Mid and Seniors at the same time.  I will sketch some paths and add Drupal milestones that I used to evaluate when a person has grown or it's interests have changed, thus offer it more challenging tasks. I will speak about my experience and the teachings that I took from it, also will involve the audience in order to have more points of view on the topic.


Everyone love Drupal. Also, everyone want to write 100% working code. And to be sure that your code still working you need to test it. For continuos process you need to test it automatically, because in other case you will have not time to write your code.

This presentation is about using tools for automated testing. Mostly it's overview for newcomers, but many experienced developer still not using auto tests (or tests at all). I'm going to change it.
