When the testability level of a project is not monitored, it can end up becoming a burden for the team. These testability problems usually add up in small steps, making them hard to detect if we do not make the effort to look for them.
Software Testing Videos and Tutorials: Load Testing, Unit Testing, Functional Testing
This video show how and why we should all be doing test reviews on our peer’s code. It talks about basic rules to look for in test code and reviews some of the tests of public open source projects.
It becomes difficult to modify legacy modules without breaking clients when software become more complex and the number of clients grows. Large scale regression testing takes a lot of resources. This video presents a testing approach that allows developers to select a set of tests that will testing as many integration points as possible but can be executed in a manageable amount of time.
Mocking frameworks allow you to stub out behavior to perform tests of individual pieces of functionality. However, there are times when performing certain actions and assert a result is not sufficient. This video drills deep into unit testing and explains the differences between state and interaction–based testing. We will examine the role of stubs versus mocks and how to correctly write unit tests that are not fragile or counter–productive.

Agile development approaches present unique challenges for testers and test teams. Working in short iterations, often with limited written requirements, agile development teams can leave traditional testers behind.
