Dividing our test time by 10

Pierre de Wulf @Daolf

I know that this milestone is a pure "tech" one and not a "10k MRR" kind, but I wanted to share it with you. For the last month, I've been trying to reduce our testing time on Heroku. 🤓

I've optimized the code a lot but I've reached a point where I could not do better.

I am a huge fan of the Heroku platform but their doc on tests parallelization in Python was rather scarse. 🧐

I finally managed to find a way to parallelize my pytest tests and I talked extensively about this process in this blog post: https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/parallel-python-testing-in-heroku

This small step is an important one as it allows us to deploy a new version of the app much faster than before. 😎
