Java Testing Weekly 4 / 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

  • Introduction to mutation testing describes how you can get started with mutation testing if you are using Javascript.
  • Property Based Testing with Javaslang provides a very quick introduction to property based testing and describes how you can test your FizzBuzz implementation by using property based testing and Javaslang.

The Really Valuable Stuff

  • 30 Things Every New Software Tester Should Learn is long and extensive post that identifies 30 things every software tester should learn and describes how you can learn these things. The best part of this blog post is that it gives you a list of tasks that help you to learn these things.
  • Continuous Integration Certification is funny and excellent blog post that describes a simple set of questions that help you to see if you are really doing continuous integration AND deserve a shiny continuous integration certificate.
  • Re-testing without the tester is an interesting post that describes what can happen when a developer and a tester assume that the other person will test a bug fix (the bug was not fixed properly). Also, I agree that "forcing" testers to re-test every bug fix is a waste of time. I think that developers should test their own bugfixes because this helps testers to be more productive.
