As I'm going through the motions of improving my coding skills each day, there's something that's always been on the periphery of my mind: testing.
Any job description throws it in. Discussions with well-meaning mentors and acquaintances drop the innocent assumption that you're correctly testing the code you run - you know, so that 'your linters dont' yell at you!'
But then I'm like, 'Whaaaaat?'
I'm not sure if I need to be testing my own personal projects or not, but I feel like it's probably a good thing to learn...eventually.
In the meantime, I found this great article, and it helped me start to at least make a little bit of sense of it all.
Any suggestions/recommendations/perspectives for a newbie tester are welcome!
P.S. I'm searching for my next role as a Front-End Web Developer! If you have any leads, please let me know!
