My colleague at Geist Interactive, Lance_Brandenberg, spoke for the first time at DevCon 2018. He brought up his favorite topic: Testable Custom Apps and how to build those.

He recapped his session here: https://www.geistinteractive.com/2018/10/29/filemaker-tests-introducing/ in our "Geist In the Machine" blog area.


We believe in our form of testing, and we believe in strong testing. It is part of our Karbon Framework. We strongly support the modular-scripting format, using JSON to pass data in and get data out of those modular scripts, and the custom functions we use to validate the JSON, check for errors, and handle those errors.


I encourage you to check out Lance's session here: Session Materials & Video


But I'm curious what we as a community do in terms of testing.

it's been awhile since I've seen this general topic come up.


How do you test? What do you test? Where do you test?


Please share your thoughts. I'm interested in a free sharing of ideas on this topic.
