Functional testing is for everyone! Busting myths about unit vs. functional testingBill Schneider

I will share how I led a team from believing that end-to-end functional (browser) tests were "other" or "someone else's problem", to engaging the whole team in writing these kinds of tests. By the end of the transition these tests were on almost equal footing as unit tests.
Along the way, I had to challenge conventional wisdom and dogma about unit tests - that unit tests are easier than functional tests, that unit tests are less brittle, or that unit tests are unconditionally useful.
This talk is more about changing people's mindset than about specific tools, although I found that having the right tools made the mindset shift possible.
