Dear testers, if I got this right Quality Assurance is not the term you like (me neither). Well no-one can assure quality.
What is a better wording for it? Does Quality Control cover the work? Any better proposition?
Thank you for your help! You rock!๐Ÿ’™

Welcome to , here are couple tricks:
- find the content to follow, no company is shoving content into your face here
- initially check as many profiles as you can and follow if you enjoy their toots
- joinmastodon.org/communities lists instances
- /about page of each instance has "Discover users" + "what's happening": great way to find profiles to follow.
- click on "star" if you enjoyed the post, "boost" if you want your followers to enjoy it too
- block spammy accounts right away

Nothing was "removing" them.

There was a *second* "Apply" button far below. Obviously I forgot to click that before navigating away. UX matters even if your audience is 100% tech-nerds. (and yes, I should've used the CLI or cloudformation, I know)

Are there cases when tests are waste? I don't think so.

Tests are great for exploring an API, framework or Library.
Tests are an automation framework. I hate repeating labor. Clicking around through the same feature, fifty-five times a day, when developing it: that is waste!

Manual tests are important too. They achieve three things. 1. Get a feeling how users experience the app. 2. 3. Bore the hell out of me.

Automate! All! Things!
But keep testing manually.

(Just make sure you don't do like me and test with nonsense like "lalala")

E2E tests achieve three things, four if you do TDD/BDD: 1. Ensure critical features work for users. 2. Specify what a feature does (user-story-style). 3. Stay on top of performance(degradations). 4. Build only what is needed for a feature.

Integration tests achieve two things three if you do TDD: 1. spec the business/domain-logic 2. test that classes and layers are wired up properly 3. Ensure we don't build stuff that is not needed (YAGNI).

Unit tests achieve two things, three if you do TDD: 1. cover all paths & nooks-and-crannies. 2. spec how a class/unit/boundary works *for a developer*. 3. teach early on about design and architecture issues.

The testing-pyramid explains most layers (good alternatives for the pyramid here: medium.com/@mateuszroth/why-th).

They boil down to: "e2e", "integration", "unit". Depending on my architecture, I may need additional ones, but at least these three.

Developers often ask me "What to test"? The answer is always "Everything!"

Always, everything. The question is really How, not What. How to test everything? Well, TDD!. But a good organization of tests too. There are many different types of tests. And we always need all.
