Good unit tests help you find errors in your code, and are easy to understand and maintain. Bad unit tests however, destroy the whole purpose of your testing effort. If they take over your test suite, you suddenly don’t understand
Software testing has become an essential activity in modern software projects. Unit testing promises automation and thus increased efficiency and reusability when it comes to software testing. In practice, however, unit tests are rather a burden than an efficiency booster.
Unit testing is a crucial activity for every modern software project. However, writing and maintaining code for unit tests is one of the most annoying activities in software engineering. So, why are you still doing it? Actually, modern unit testing
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has revolutionized many areas over the last years. However, for the big advantage of fast automation that was not possible before, comes the tradeoff of reduced reliability. In this article, I describe why this is an issue
There are several ways to improve your skills as a developer (e.g. “Try This For a Week And Speed Up Your Coding Productivity 10x” ). In this article, I describe why one of the best ways to do this is to
Unit testing is (or at least should be) an integral part of every software project.Why? Running your unit tests after changing your code gives you the security to know whether (and how much) you broke some unintended parts of your
Thinking about positive and negative execution cases for your system, and then specifying them to an extent that they can be implemented requries quite a lot of cognitive work.And after you’ve done that, the tedious tasks start.You have to set
Unit testing often involves a lot of tedious, repetitive work that takes a lot of your time that could be spent on something more meaningful and fun (like adding actual functionality to your code).On the other side, the value of
Unit Testing is hard.First, you have to think about what you want to test, how to test it, and then write code for it.While writing code for your test cases, you also have to stick to patterns and clean code
ISTQB (I don’t want to bother you with the full name – you know what I mean anyways) offers a wide range of standardized education in software quality, and software testing in particular, for everyone.In other words, you can learn
