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.
- Structured JUnit 5 testing is an interesting blog post that explains how you can structure your test cases by using nested inner classes and the given-when-then format.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Does Test Driven Development Work? is an excellent post that takes a look at both subjective discussions and academic research. Finally, the author shares his own thoughts about TDD. I recommend that you read this blog post because it's a well-written blog post, and the author shares a lot links to external resources that help you to study this matter further.
- GDPR - The Forgotten Tests - Test 1 is an interesting blog post which describes why you must ensure that the personal information of your users is safe even if you use external services (such as an email marketing tool). This post also gives you some tips that help you avoid making newbie mistakes.
- Tests Coverage is Dead — Long Live Mutation Testing explains why mutation testing is a better option for measuring the quality of your test suite than using an artificial code coverage limit.
- What Is Mutation Testing provides a quick introduction to mutation testing. If you don't know what mutation testing is, and you want to get a quick overview, you should read this blog post.
