Testing vs Monitoring

by Jiazhen Xie

TDD helps software engineers learn, understand, and internalise the key principles of good modular design. But over-testing can be really painful. Some companies believe that the goal is to have 100% test coverage - unit tests, acceptance tests, selenium tests … They are just not enough! This talk is about how to make trade-offs between testing and monitoring, why devops is trending in test. I'll share my personal stories as well as giving examples of what we monitor and why. Because at the end of the day, it's the business that matters.
