The Quest for Better Tests

Over the past twenty years, I’ve written my fair share of unit tests, mostly just covering the happy path and sending in some bogus inputs to test the edges. Typically following a fat-model-thin-controller method (often recommended by me), I failed to understand the point of integration tests. I tried TDD at the beginning of several greenfield projects, but I was never successful in making it sustainable. Similarly, with Selenium, it worked at first but quickly proved to be too brittle to keep up with rapidly changing UIs. (In retrospect, bad CSS architecture on those projects probably deserved the blame more than Selenium per se.)

This concern only seems to increase with scale. This post describes an example of how we helped a large organization discover how much faster it could experiment, innovate and deliver a product.

Clearing the Path for Future Developers

At Lab Zero, we’re often hired by clients to create brand new products, and thus brand new codebases. When our time on a project is complete, the client’s own developers inherit the codebase. We’re usually working side-by-side with these developers and are constantly engaging in knowledge transfer.
