- Unit Testing is Overrated
We all know we should write unit tests. But, it's hard to know where to start and how much time to devote to tests compared to actual implementation. So, where to start? And is it just about testing…
The second axis is the fraction of the code which gets exercised, potentially indirectly, by the test. Does the test exercise only the business logic module, or is the database API and the HTTP…
«The first axis of classification is, broadly speaking, performance. “How much time would a thousand of similar tests take?”»
We neglected unit tests for a long time because our code base made them difficult. But now we're putting in the work to change that.
Fast, easy and reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Install Cypress in seconds and take the pain out of front-end testing.
Let's Reconsider That A Set of Unit Testing Rules by Michael Feathers September 9, 2005 Summary Don't let slow tests bog you down. Teams that adopt agile practices often adopt Test Driven Development…
How do you know your code actually works? Unit testing was a concept I had never even heard of before I started my second data science job. It never came up in any of my college statistics or computer…
«Lastly, there are many tools in Python (pytest, unittest, etc.) and R (testthat) to make unit testing as simple as writing a few lines of logic and an assertion or two.»
The importance of testing in modern software development is really hard to overstate. Delivering a successful product is not something you do once and forget about but is rather a continuous recurring…
The standard techniques of good development can lead you astray if you don’t adjust them for unit tests.
Learn how to strike the right balance between unit, integration, and end-to-end testing for Node serverless applications.
When I took my first real dev job in the late 90s, it was not common for developers to write their own automated tests. Instead, large companies depended on teams of testers, who tested manually, or…
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
How many sources does Refind monitor?
We monitor 10k+ content sources on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
