Past 21st of March was the date that goes into history as the first Girl Code of 2018. It was also the first Girl Code I, Ineke, had to miss because of an acute inflammation in my stomach and so the first Girl Code without a real blogpost, ha. Wouldn’t want you to miss out on the photos and the slides, so here they are!
Sure, the testing of your projects is generally done by testers. And that’s a good thing: testing your project shouldn’t depend solely on you as a developer testing your own code! But that doesn’t mean testing your own stuff before you release it to be tested isn’t important. There are more kinds of testing then just user testing alone. Such as functional testing, unit testing and integration testing. Unit testing, for example, also takes care of missing bugs when you build something new that might unintentionally break another part of your code: your tests will save you!
We were welcomed by Teddy at bloomon. As I already code at home with the flowers of bloomon next to my laptop I was really excited this meetup was at their office where we got to see not only their flowers but also their development department up close. Our speakers talked about their approaches to testing. Mariyana’s talk was called ‘UI Testing & Libraries @ bloomon’ and Marie‘s ‘Unit testing using Mocha’.
