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.
- Robot Framework Tutorial 2016 – Wrap-Up and Conclusion is the final post of Codecentric's new Robot Framework tutorial. It identifies the pros and cons of Robot Framework and answers to the question: "Should the users of the application write tests for it?".
- Testing Spring MVC with Spring Boot 1.4: Part 1 describes how you can write unit tests for Spring MVC controllers by using the testing enhancements that are provided by Spring Boot 1.4+.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Flipping The Reversed Test Pyramid describes the challenges that you face if you ignore integration and unit tests, and write only integration tests.
- Should test automation be left to developers? describes why test automation should be left to developers and explains why it is not a good idea. Confused? If so, you might want to read this blog post.
- The temptation to split dev and test work in sprints - don’t do it! is an excellent post which argues that testing and development should always done in the same sprint. Also, it explains why it is a bad idea to have separate development and testing columns on your sprint board and describes why you must do some testing even if your team has dedicated testers.
