  1. Recently my testing organization has been struggling with defining the difference between the different layers of automated tests, specifically where unit tests stop and integration tests start. I loved the clarity with which Vladimir was able to describe the difference, and establish a clear border between the two (out of process == integration). Thanks guys! Another awesome discussion, helped me solidify a mental model for gumping the definition of the different test layers!

  2. Thanks for bringin more conversations about Unit Testing into the mix. I really feel like understanding unit testing instead of pushing it to a “dev task” helps one become better at strategizing their End-To-End tests. I’d love to check out this book

  3. This was a fantastic conversation. Our developers already do a good job at creating appropriate unit tests, and I know that this book will help us “up our game.” I expect that we all will learn a great deal about what will move us from “good job” to “great job.” That will definitely include improving our mocking and integration tests. Thanks, Joe, for introducing us to this important book!

  4. Great info and these pillars are super useful! I appreciate you setting the foundations to make solid and reliable unit tests. I also appreciate the sentiment of the ‘post-beginner’ information. I agree that we are flooded with beginner focused content and then left to fend for ourselves to get to the next steps that would support the proper expansion of these types of tests. Thanks for this podcast!!
