Lately I’ve been doing some research about ET tools, and came across this article:

The last article I read: Using Podman Compose with Microcks: A cloud-native API mocking and testing tool | Red Hat Developer" Microcks is a cloud-native API mocking and testing tool."
Someone in my company is using it, so I’m going to try it.

I want to write an article on functional data set tools like: https://www.fakenamegenerator.com/ and https://thispersondoesnotexist.com/ in order to help people with poor imagination :smiley:

The article I read: https://qainfotech.com/best-9-performance-testing-tools/

I’ve been looking into new tools for performance testing, I’ve mostly used JMeter for performance testing and I’m looking if there is a better tool or not… until now … not :stuck_out_tongue:

I read this comparison about visual testing tools. It’s factual and gives you a good overview about the visual testing tools on the market.

For Day 10, here’s an article I like from Johanna South about using Slack to manage test devices.
I’ve had real problems with this in the past, so I like this approach. And will probably steal it.

Playwrite with Applitools Eyes: Playwright tutorial

Our team has been talking about trying out Applitools for a while and we already have a Playwright POC. Taking that into context, this shows how easy it is to apply their Eyes tool to a Playwright project.

Looks like the Applitools team wrote it, and just a big thanks for taking the time to write a Playwright Eyes SDK and telling us how to use it.

An article about my experiences with either Wiremock or Playwrite would be cool!

Not directly tool related, those tend to be dull and most of the time trying to sell you on one specific tool.

How did it help you and how could it help others?

It certainly helps ensuring you are doing the right thing, employing the right techniques and tools.

Who wrote it and how might you thank them for doing so?

André Schaffer it says, relatively long ago, but still actual for which I’m very grateful.

What testing tools article or blog post would you like to read and/or write yourself?

I have been very opinionated recently about structuring UI tests, so something related to Screenplay Pattern in the context of integrating it with the latest UI tools, which we saw a proliferation of recently.
