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.”

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.
