He is a passionate blogger and enjoys speaking at conferences.


While there are plenty of resources about writing awesome code, the same doesn't quite exist for tests. So how do you write great unit tests? And how do you ensure failures are easy to fix? What are the best practices? And most importantly what are the pitfalls to look out for? If you're already comfortable writing tests, come level up your testing skills with deep insights into the "Why" and "How" of fundamental testing principles. You will learn: - What three criteria make tests awesome - What to test and what not to test - Why you should optimise tests for failure - How many tests you should write per method - How to test literally everything - What is code coverage and why it can be deceiving - How to use AssertJ to make test super readable - What TDD is and what its benefit is
