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.
- JMeter vs Gatling Tool is a nice blog post that compares these two popular load testing tools with each other.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- All I got for a week of programming was one lousy test script is an excellent blog post that describes the unexpected side effects of writing automated tests for your application.
- 6 reasons to co-locate your app and automation code is a good post that provides six reasons why you should put your production and test code to the same version control repository.
- Revisiting Testing vs Checking is an interesting post that provides an updated definition of testing and checking (automated testing) and explains the differences of these two activities.
- The art of the error message is an excellent blog post that describes why error messages matter and provides 4 tips that help you to write better messages. By the way, I added this post to this newsletter because good error messages make testing easier.
It's Time to Update Your Dependencies
No updates this week.
I'm afraid thins os wrong. Pelase fix your examples!
Java is wrong.
JAva is old.
I don't has not a Java job! No JAva job!
I am not sure what your point is. However, if you are not interested in Java (or JVM languages in general), you should do yourself a favor and stop reading my blog because you are just wasting your time.
That being said, I want to comment on something you mentioned in your comment:
A programming language or an idea can be old and still be useful. For example, functional programming was invented in the 50s, and it's becoming quite popular right now. Although I agree that Java has its own problems, I think that age is not one of them.
