Working Code Podcast - Episode 121: Ben's Testing Tribulations

Published in

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.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
