We're going to discuss why the mainstream testing techniques (unit, integration, e2e) might fall short sometime and present 5 modern and useful alternatives
Why is this important? The vast majority of node.js testing tutorials deal only with unit or integration tests. While this is aligned with common best practices (e.g. the traditional testing pyramid), new voices doubt whether those are the right match for many projects, mostly because of their complexity and low ROI. As a result, new testing techniques emerge and provide an attractive alternative. In this session, we will discuss how to choose the right testing strategy for a project and demonstrate a handful of modern and fascinating techniques like property-based testing, consumer driven contacts (pact), component testing and more.
Important pre-requisites: We're going to compare some advanced (and neat) testing tools with the basics - it's recommended that you will make yourself familiar with the fundamentals of software testing: unit test, integration test, test-driven-development and the testing pyramid. Here are some suggested tutorials:
