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.
- JUnit 5 Tutorial: Writing Our First Test Class describes how you can create a test class, use setup and teardown methods, and write simple test methods with JUnit 5.
- Next Generation Test Automation with Usetrace takes a closer look at a UI test automation tool called Usetrace that allows you to record and run test cases. Even though I am not personally a big fan of these tools, I think that they can be valuable in certain situations.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Pairing With Developers: A Guide For Testers is a guide that helps testers to pair with developers. It explains why this is a good idea and provides instructions which help you to prepare for the pairing session, get the most out of the pairing session, and gather feedback.
- TDD: "Failing to Falsify" is an interesting blog post that describes how the author does TDD and explains how this "delivery method" helps the author to deliver software that fulfills it requirements (i.e. code that passes all tests).
- The Anatomy of a Comprehensive Selenium Testing Strategy provides four tips that help you to write useful and robust end-to-end tests with Selenium.
- Why and how I still use the test automation pyramid explains why the test automation pyramid is still useful (if you use it in the right way).
