Testing Vapor - A Deep Dive

This is a write up of the talk I gave at July’s Vapor London Meetup. The slides from that presentation can be found here. WARNING: this post has turned into a bit of an epic one, coming in at 8,000 words! Although I’ll skim over some basics of testing Vapor, it is a deep dive and for those who don’t feel comfortable with testing at all, I recommend reading some of the other excellent tutorials out there first.
