If you want to be able to test well, you also have to keep a clean house.
Clean and clearly written code bases are the foundation of a good test. If the tester does not understand why each unit is being tested and how it fits into the big picture, they cannot create optimal future tests.

Code authors should document parameters, properties and methods using standardized methods. Authors should include comments if needed and always use standard terms, instead of abbreviations that could be later misinterpreted. No, there are no shortcuts, per se. There are MVC frameworks that have built-in support and help with the unit testing of applications. But, if you are not writing your code in the absolute best style for testing, you are going to run into some problems by depending on a framework such as Angular JS or Backbone.
Separate your code by breaking down the logic behind each code and creating smaller modules to work with. But considering that you will be constantly changing your functions, staying organized means you will still be able to write your tests later on and have them work. Keep your code clean, clear and easily understood by the person doing the testing, and everyone stays happy. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. But hopefully with these tips, and remembering to always keep our code as simple and functional as possible, we can keep our test coverage high and overall code complexity low!
Trostler talks about this, but not nearly at the length I was hoping for. Whereas Murphey kept her talk albeit, it was a one hour talk focused on adopting testable styles, Trostler's book manages to be about writing testable code, writing tests, and running tests.
Given the title, I was expecting more about that functional style, more about decomposing functions into discrete units, more about how to reason about problems etc. Chapter 3. From there, he takes us on a tour of the rest of Test Town: writing unit tests, writing integration tests, code coverage, performance testing, load testing, debugging, linting and code quality, and how to bundle it all up and automate it.
Somehow this is both too much information and not nearly enough at the same time.
Here the reader is offered practical advice on the development of effective unit test cases and the use of test automation frameworks such as Selenium, Phantom. Since the value of unit tests is correlated to the amount of code that is tested, there is a detailed discussion around the generation and validity of code coverage metrics. The book also introduces tools and techniques for integration, performance and load testing with respect to web applications. Finally the author considers tools and techniques that help to implement automated build and test processes.
Se non sapete niente di testing lasciatelo sullo scaffale, non imparerete quasi nulla.
Onestamente non saprei a che pubblico consigliarlo. Mar 26, Naoise rated it liked it Shelves: arts-crafts. This is an interesting read.
