Java Testing Weekly 38 / 2018

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

  • On Writing Beautiful Tests a comprehensive blog post that helps you to write beautiful tests. I don't agree with every advice given by this blog post, but I still think that this post is worth reading.
  • What’s New in JUnit 5.3 is a practical blog post that provides an introduction to the new features of JUnit 5.3.

The Test With Spring course helps you to write automated tests for Spring and Spring Boot web applications.


The Really Valuable Stuff

  • A message to recruiters for automation testers is an excellent blog post which argues that automated tests cannot fulfill all your testing needs.
  • Devs Leading the Testing I Do is a basically a rant that explains why developers shouldn't try to postpone testing by treating it as a separate task (and not a part of the implementation).
  • Tips for programmers who want to build testing skills is a good blog post which identifies five things a developer can do if she wants to improve her testing skills.
