Some of you might have noticed that I have written only a handful of new blog posts during the last few years. One reason for this is that during these years I have been writing and recording material for a new JUnit 5 course. After a year I kind of realized that producing good videos takes too much time or money.
I decided that it was time to do something different.
The Introduction to JUnit 5 course is a text-based course that has 23 lessons and 12 quizzes. I decided to use this format because:
- It's easy (and fast) to release new material and make changes to the existing material. This means that I can (and I will) make adjustments to the course when I get feedback from my students.
- I think that a text-based course is a superior format when you need a reference manual. For example, even though I have used JUnit 5 from day one, I still don't remember how I can write parameterized tests or write custom extensions. When I wrote the Introduction to JUnit 5 course, I structured the course in a way that helps you to find answers to your frequently asked questions. In other words, you can use the Introduction to JUnit 5 course as a learning material and as a reference manual.
- Because text-based courses require a lot less work than video courses, I can price them more fairly. I have realized that I don't want to maximize my profits. Instead, I want to maximize the reach of my ideas and text-based courses help me to achieve this goal.
