In this post, I’ll illustrate the workflow that you can use to extend TestLess so it can analyze any test suite. I will use a real example from a real customer to show you how easy it is to extend TestLess. The Problem Recently, I received the following question from a customer: I’d […]
Out of the questions that customers ask about TestLess, the one that crops out the most is: how can I create my own TestDetector for my language and/or test-style of choice? In other words: how do TestDetectors work? I’ll clarify and answer those two questions in this post. TestLess comes equipped with several TestDetectors out of […]
In this post we take a quick look back at the success stories for Mutator and TestLess that you might not know about: Bloom Filters Bloom filters are everywhere nowadays, and having seen the quality improvements that Mutator started, it is no wonder that the authors of one popular implementation decided to continue on that road. Best of Breed Mutator […]
No blog post for this month. However, the Ortask blog will return with a great post next month!
In this post I’ll show how I built a motion tracker using Arduino and a single ultrasonic sensor. The main purpose of this post is to show how the ASM method can help you think differently to solve problems. In particular, I noticed during my research that most, if not all, motion trackers end up using […]
If you are a TDD (Test-Driven Development) practitioner, you will most likely find the triangulation technique (a.k.a specific/generic cycle) incredibly useful for driving the design of your software. In short, triangulation is a technique that uses tests as a guide to help your software implementation emerge, little by little, from requirements. I like to think of triangulation […]
In the last post, I showed analysis results of Puppet’s test duplication along with other interesting findings. The relationships discovered seem to suggest that test duplication is not due to chance alone, and that there is a complex relationship in terms of amount of tests in the suites that is not entirely linear. The results in the post also […]
