June 2020 Content Summary

TLDR; June content contains links to a lot of updated WebDriver content and new code repos to study.

The content on Patreon is accessible for only $1 a month at patreon.com/eviltester. And for $5 a month the Patreon supporters gain access to downloadable PDFs of the content and micro courses e.g. How I Test - Web App, Test Ability Audit and more

I spent quite a lot of time this month tidying the blog:

  • deleting old posts that added no value
  • refreshing old posts that were out of date
  • merging posts that could add more value together

I also tidied up Patreon and created index posts for all the months that I’ve been on Patreon to make the content easier to navigate. The top leve index post is here.

All of which meant that the blog summary collation for Patreon came in at around 100+ pages each.

Much of my Selenium Simplified blog content has now been updated to have new code, and I’ve created a github project for the WebDriverFAQ posts:

I also created a JUnit 4 and JUnit 5 FAQs project to help me tidy my Java For Testers blog posts:

The JUnitExamples project above also has a ‘multi-media’ flavour to it because I have added a lot more readme.md files and embedded links to explanatory videos.

I created a 8 extra videos explaining Tactical vs Strategic automating, based on my SauceCon talk, and released them as a micro course to Patreon supporters.

Twitter Summary for June 2020

This summary is pulled from reports generated by Chatterscan.com (A free Twitter Client)

I filter by user @eviltester, show retweets, and replies. Then look in the page source to find the markdown to copy and paste.

A few things that caught my eye I saw when reviewing my Twitter feed:

And some additional stuff I created:

  • My SauceCon talk recording was released to YouTube
  • I released a gist showing how to make pages a little more readable tweet and there were recommendations for some plugins that can help.

It was Father’s Day in the UK so I wrote a little poem for my Dad to put in his card. You might need to refer to a Scots dictionary to follow it.

Happy Father's Day - wi' a'hing gan agley

The country might huv gan agley,
But ye'll still hae yer Father's Day.
An so ye dinnae feel tae doon,
Tak summat fur tae sorrows droon.
Dinnae shoogle it. Naw, pour it steady.
An add nae ice. It's braw a'ready.
Mind ye Dinae get tae fu'.
A wee dram is plenty, or mibay two,
A'hings fine, wi a wee bevvy.
Away, aff wi ye noo, an' go get merry.

Happy Father's Day
