Just because a site says we can’t paste into a field, doesn’t mean we have to believe it.
How do you keep motivated and accountable to improving your testing and technical skills?
TLDR; New patreon bonus - pdf collation of posts monthly and more micro course content.
In case you missed it here is a summary of January 2019, blog posts, some notes and patreon roundup.
TLDR; Downloading a file with RestAssured is as simple as taking the body of a request as a byte array and writing it to a file.
When automating I often have to download files. One very common FAQ for WebDriver is “How do I download a file with WebDriver?”.
TLDR; Boundary Value Analysis is a simple technique and with additional exploration can add value in the real world.
Boundary Value Analysis (BVA) is one of the most basic test techniques that we learn.
Often taught at the same time as Equivalence Partitioning.
In this post I explain the technique and use it it find a bug in Chrome and Firefox.
TLDR; Using Visual SVN, svnserve and local SVN repositories I was able to easily convert SVN to Git on Windows.

TLDR; Automating is not limited to “Test Automation”. With the ability to code, we gain the flexibility to approach problems in multiple ways. We can refactor tactical code to become strategic code.
I needed to migrate some data from one system to another. To do it manually would have taken me about 1.5 to 2 days. I automated tactically and was done in 2 hours.

I see a lot of pro and con posts and questions on the internet. They lack the context behind the pro and con identification, so I find it hard to use them directly.
TLDR; I create a lot of exclusive content at Patreon.com/eviltester have you had a look at it?
I’ve been doing a lot of writing recently - but mainly on Patreon. I’ve started writing (as much as possible) daily logs covering, testing my work, tools, development, books, etc. And a lot of it is exclusive to Patreon.
