Java Testing Weekly 7 / 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

The Really Valuable Stuff

  • Beware tests that don’t test what you think they do explains why you shouldn’t trust a test case if you are not absolutely sure that it actually tests the correct thing.
  • Making my work invisible tells a the story of a tester who was “blamed for not doing her job” because she didn’t find enough bugs during the testing phase. Luckily, this story has a happy ending, and it also demonstrates why a good tester makes his/her work invisible.
  • On elegance is a somewhat philosophical post that tries to identify the qualities of a an elegant automated test.
