Testing is more than TDD. There’s a whole world out there of ideas and testing strategies you can employ to grow the team’s confidence in the code. In this episode, Mathias and Konstantin talk about topics such as:

Testing after the code was written
Characterisation tests
Behavioral, functional and integrations tests
When and when not to use code coverage, as well as other metrics such as refactorability
How tests help to get a sustainable pace
Confidence as the most important metric for test quality
The benefits of throwing away tests, sometimes even systematically
