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.
- Unit Testing Anti-Pattern: Code Matching is another excellent post by Gil Zilberfeld that explains why you shouldn't write unit tests that "imitate" or "duplicate" the behavior of the tested method.
- Why I Introduced Scala In Our Project describes why the author decided to use Scale for writing tests even though he doesn't like the language at all.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- How to come up with test ideas provides a huge list of links to interesting articles that help you to recognize the scenarios you should test.
- Testing, for people who hate testing is written by a person who doesn't like to write tests. However, the author has figured out a way to make it a bit more pleasant, and he/she shares his/her tips in this blog post.
- How I approach Coaching is a useful post that describes the "process" the author uses when he provides his coaching service. Now, you might be wondering why I added this post since it has got nothing to do with testing. Well, I added this blog post here because I think that it can give you some ideas how you can help other developers to get started with testing or help them to get better at it.
