Kostis Kapelonis gifted the world a 9,000+ word post on Software Testing Anti-patterns. 13 anti-patterns are detailed in depth, very thoughtfully. The most pervasive/bad of them in my opinion are integration tests without unit tests, testing internal implementation, paying excessive attention to test coverage, and (it pains me to say) treating TDD as a religion. He ends by pointing out that “If [your team is guilty of these anti-patterns], then you are simply testing in the wrong way and no amount of tests will make your application better.”

Being a developer isn’t all about the code. Well, maybe it is. However, for those moments when you think its not take a look at these solid reminders. 1. Stretch and do other things to avoid Carpal Tunnel with Keyboard Gym. 2. Fire Bad Clients. 3. Learn to recognize Burnout. Who am I kidding? It’s all about the code. Checkout this new cool JavaScript Framework. Just kidding! Take care of yourself and have a good weekend. ❤️💛💚💙💜

Scott Johnson’s piece ‘Ten Things I Learned from a Job Hunt for a Senior Engineering Role’ led him to think “No one believes that anyone can actually code.” Check out his other tips and see ‘The latest trend for tech interviews: Days of unpaid homework’. There is an enormous Orange Site discussion on the latter.

Rust has united programmers that specialize in Ruby, JavaScript and C++. Jonathan Turner details what makes the the Rust community thrive, and how Rust makes decisions moving forward. It’s pretty neat that the core rust team is only made up of 10 people. Also, a neat tidbit from the article, “Each Rust release since 1.0 has maintained backwards compatibility with all previous releases.” How many other languages can say that? Let’s see how long it stays that way.
