I have started a new challenge to learn something new in one month.
My goal in October was to get better at unit testing. I started reading the book The Art of Unit Testing by Roy Osherove some time ago and I wanted to finish it in October. I am proud to say that I have achieved my October goal: I have finished the book 😃
I posted several articles about what I have learned while reading the book. I was already familiar with some or even most of these topics that were covered in the book and which I blogged about. Nevertheless it was good to refresh my skills in this area and write down a summary which I can read again from time to time. I even made a presentation to my colleagues at work so I share my knowledge.
- Breaking dependencies in C#
- Value-based vs. state-based vs. interaction testing
- Continuous integration
- Isolation frameworks
My new goal for November will be to learn about Amazon Web Services because I am heading to the AWS re:Invent conference at the end of the month so I want to be prepared for the more advanced sessions.
