Java Testing Weekly 27 / 2017

There are many software development blogs out there, but many of them don't publish testing articles on a regular basis.

Also, I have noticed that some software developers don't read blogs written by software testers. That is a shame because I think that we can learn a lot from them.

That is why I decided to create a newsletter that shares the best testing articles which I found during the last week.

Let's get started.

Technical Stuff

The Really Valuable Stuff

  • #NoTDD is a thought-provoking post that explains why TDD doesn't work if you are not very good (or better) at design and refactoring. The author also argues that we should "stop" trying to do TDD and concentrate on getting better at design and refactoring.
  • Tackle the Hard Problems First identifies four problems that you must solve before you start writing automated tests for a new software project.
  • TDD: Mind Your Language demonstrates how you can improve an existing test case by changing the API of the tested class.
  • Test automation ROI: 5 ways to show the business benefits identifies five business benefits of test automation. If you want to get started with automated testing or you want want to write more automated tests, but you cannot get your colleagues and/or boss to agree with you, this post might help you to solve your problem.
