Viktor Slavchev shares some hindsight about an API testing project. API is one of the areas where it makes sense to invest in test automation, because it is an interface that is consumed by code or by an application. So, it fits perfectly the description of easy to test with code application. However, Viktor Slavchev is amazed how little information is available about API testing basics.

Junit 5 is a big step for the world of unit testing for Android apps. This is a new very flexible open source testing framework, based on many years of experiences with Junit 4. At the sporttotal company, we use Junit 5 for our Android unit tests and it changed the way we write our tests. Hard for us to imagine living without features like @Nested. Other features we ignored as those are more leaning towards Java and are solved already by Kotlin or other Kotlin libraries. And some features are even breaking changes.
Matt Wynne, co-founder of Cucumber, delivers a short webinar presentation on 10 easy ways to fail at Behavior-Driven Development (BDD). Many organizations desperately want to enjoy the benefits of practicing Agile testing BDD, yet set themselves up for failure.
There is a lot of talk around software testing - who will do it, when it needs to happen, boxes it needs to fit in — yet not enough on the actual testing. This webinar explores one problem in a demo setting using an exploratory testing approach. This means live testing (and live coding) to figure out the options to get a test program covered – for code coverage, for spec coverage and for risk coverage.
Spock was a game changer for all the Java software developers struggling with unit testing in JUnit 4. Compact syntax, parameterized tests or flexibility to mention just a few advantages. Over 10 years after JUnit 4.0, the brand new, written from scratch, Java 8 optimized JUnit 5 has been released. Is it still worth to write tests in Spock?
As traditional knowledge sharing is no longer an effective way to deliver great software, the presenter has modified the mob programming concept to mob testing to improve the way teams communicate. This innovative approach to software testing allows the whole software development team to share every piece of information early on.
