Reading Recommendations # 22

It is Wednesday again and the 22nd issue of my software testing reading recommendations is available with 8 recommended blog posts. There are posts dealing with the topics: Introducing the Software Testing Cupcake a new anti-pattern which I highly recommend to read. There is a post with the topic “Lessons learned on avoiding testing” which is also very interesting. Furthermore, there are post about talking on conferences and what a blogger learnt from it. How to mock the current mobile device location with testmunk. How to improve quality and syntax of your Android code. A post about good and bad disruption, a post about a new theory of distraction and a last post which is dealing with white box testing vs. black box testing.

Enjoy reading the posts.
