One thought on “Ep. 2 – Infinitest with Ben Rady

  1. Thanks again for the great podcast! I have listened to all 3 and the conversation on this one move along a little more smoothly than the others. My only request is to have each person state “This is ___________” when they start speaking.

    As a Tester for more years than I care to admit to, I applaud the concern by Developers with testing their code. On many of my previous projects testing was strictly the Tester’s responsibility.

    I agree that as valuable as Unit tests are, they have a limited scope and that the regression test suite (which I define as being run with each build) should be composed of tests at the capability, behavior or functional level.
