Our reading recommendations of the week #22– 2020

Today I will share with you 3 readings recommendations, covering 3 very different subjects:

  • Comparing Executable Specification tools

  • 7 Reasons to Choose Consumer-Driven Contract Tests Over End-to-End Tests

  • 8 free security tools every developer should know and use to Shift Left

First, if you are interested in these tools, we suggest you to read the very detailed article written by Jean-Pierre Lambert comparing executable specification tools like Cucumber, FitNess or Gauge: Comparing Executable Specification tools.

The article is a bit old (3 years), so don’t hesitate to comment here if you have updates or new tools to suggest.

Have you heard about consumer-driven contract tests? If not, or if you want to learn things in order to improve your automation strategy then I suggest you this article making a comparison with end-to-end tests: 7 Reasons to Choose Consumer-Driven Contract Tests Over End-to-End Tests by Tom Hombergs.

Finally, when speaking of testing the security of applications, it’s never easy to find the right tools. The article written by Mackenzie Jackson is a good way to better understand how security can be better tested with different kind of tools at different levels. Check it out: 8 free security tools every developer should know and use to Shift Left

Take care of yourself and keep up the good work for a better (test) world!
