After a week of break, we go back to our regular series.
I’ve decided to keep incremental episode numeration. Mostly to confuse people that will see week #9 at the beginning of January. Let’s talk about micro-services.
The question of the week:
How to collect feedback? Last few conference and other events led me to think that current ways of collecting feedback are not working well. I am trying to figure out if there is a better way.
Currently, I am looking into ways of activation of users and gamification.
The Article of the week:
„Testing Microservices, the sane way” this article is long but worth it. I have experienced lots of the pains and issues that author is talking about. So I am looking for a solution to avoid them in future. This article is suggesting few not sure if I fully agree with the author, but I am will to give a try
The Experiment of the week:
I was trying to make green tea fudges (link )
The first attempt came out much too soft/creamy (it was more sauce the candy). Turns out not every chocolate is good for this. Fortunately, some old tricks worked. And I managed to save it.
It reminds me of test cases. No matter how good test case is, it is always possible to miss some vital piece of information. For example, we tend to assume that something is common knowledge. That test case becomes useless for anybody without insider knowledge.
The only way to salvage the testing season with such test is by experimenting and using your own experience. Ergo exploratory testing.
I have few articles in the oven. But a lot is happening in January, so I don’t want to commit to any hard date.
