I was recently tasked with removing an old feature from one of our services at work. As I did this, I kept breaking tests that were tightly coupled to the rendering of user interface (UI). In my mind, these tests were unnecessarily "brittle" and appeared to be testing the underlying front-end framework more so than the underlying business logic. When I brought this up in the podcast's Discord server, people disagreed with me. As such, we decided to dig into the topic of "what" to test more closely.
All that and more on this week's show:
