Automated Testing for Developers
#257 Request Specs and Capybara
On the podcast this month Seb Rose speaks to Henry Coles, the creator of Mutation Testing tool PIT. Here's how they describe Mutation Testing on the PIT Test website - "Mutation testing is conceptually quite simple. Faults (or mutations) are automatically seeded into your code, then your tests are run. If your tests fail then the mutation is killed, if your tests pass then the mutation lived. The quality of your tests can be gauged from the percentage of mutations killed." *They discuss:* - What is mutation testing? - How widely adopted is this approach in the enterprise? - When and where should you use mutation testing? - What can developers learn from academics? - What are the similarities and differences between Mutation Testing and Property-Based Testing **Shownotes** PIT Test - http://pitest.org/ Quick theories (Property-Based Testing tool) - https://github.com/ncredinburgh/QuickTheories Work at NCR - NCR careers - http://ncredinburgh.com/jobs/
Collaboration Between Testers and Devs
The history of testers and developers working together is a bumpy road. Throughout the evolution of software development, testers have struggled to be treated as equals and developers have lacked the understanding of why they should care. Yet some teams do it well - both roles have a good experience and the resulting software benefits from the different perspectives. In this podcast, Franziska and Maaret speak to Matt Wynne to share some tips on how to improve this in your team. Show notes: CukenFest London, April 19th-20th.

Contract Testing with Pact
This month on the Cucumber Podcast we speak to Beth Skurrie, who is the maintainer of the open-source project, Pact. Pact falls into the category of contract testing and with the advent of microservices and continuous delivery, it's getting more and more important. Seb Rose takes the hosting duties with extra questions from Steve Tooke.

Automated Testing helps you keeping a TM stable and reliable without too much manual testing effort. In this episode we try to cover some aspects of it, specially we focus on using eCATT in the TM context and we also visit newer tools like Selenium.
Episode 32 - Exploring Quality Assurance with Peggy Sturman
In this episode we’ll be talking about the QA role on an agile team, skills and knowledge beneficial to this role, and how developers and QA can work together collaboratively. Today we’re happy to welcome Peggy Sturman to the show. Peggy has been a long time listener and supporter of the show. We met her through our Slack channel where we often have discussions around technologies we’re learning, career and interview advice, and thoughts about the field in general. She has nearly two decades of Quality Assurance experience and is currently learning about software development and coding in her free time. Welcome to the show Peggy! Is there anything else you’d like our listeners to know about you? “‘Sharpening the Tools’ is the section of the show where we discuss what tools we’re using, concepts we’re learning, and generally how we are continuing our learning in software development.” =============== * If you were to describe Quality Assurance in an elevator pitch, how woul...
REST APIs, testing with Docker containers and pytest
Let's say you've got a web application you need to test. It has a REST API that you want to use for testing. Can you use Python for this testing even if the application is written in some other language? Of course. Can you use pytest? duh. yes. what else? What if you want to spin up docker instances, get your app running in that, and run your tests against that environment? How would you use pytest to do that? Well, there, I'm not exactly sure. But I know someone who does. Dima Spivak is the Director of Engineering at StreamSets, and he and his team are doing just that. He's also got some great advice on utilizing code reviews across teams for test code, and a whole lot more.Special Guest: Dima Spivak.Sponsored By:DigitalOcean: Get started with a free $100 credit Support Test & Code : Python Testing for Software EngineersLinks:Introducing the StreamSets Test Frameworkpytest-benchmark · PyPIStreamSets Test Framework-based tests for StreamSets Data CollectorStreamSets: Where DevOps M...
