Course Summary, Complimentary Techniques and Further Learning
Testing Pyramid Redux
The testing pyramid consists of 3 layers: Unit, Integration and UI, and this course has shown how to test at every level.
Use Tools to Add Value
A reminder that we should only use the testing tools that make sense for our project.
A Holistic View of Testing
We should not duplicate effort – if we have certain types of code very well testing in one or two areas, it may be a waste to write more categories of tests for them.
Testing Legacy Applications
We see that we might begin with an upside down pyramid, as unit testing can be difficult for legacy applications.
- Convention Tests
- Business Readable Tests (with SpecFlow or BDDfy)
- Approval Tests (e.g. for drawing a Stick Man!)
Further Learning and Resources
Many Thanks to Jason Roberts on producing another high quality and valuable course.
