Brunei Geek Meet : Webhooking around

This month we held the meetup at iCentre thanks to the folks at DARe!

Topic of the month was webhooks with and some interesting links for the night

For the #fixBruneiWebsites session, I took a look at the Telbru website that I mentioned in this tweet having weird horizontal scroll behaviour

That seemed to be fixed with a max-width: 100% definition. Full write up of investigation and ways to check and fix it to come soon!

We saw a couple of new facings and a couple old ones but it was a great time! On to next month as we finish end off the year! 🚀

    • OpenHatch is a non-profit dedicated to matching prospective free software contributors with communities, tools, and education. openhatch.org
    • CodeTriage: receive a different open issue in your inbox every day. codetriage.com

Testing: TDD, BDD, WTH?

thewheat.github.io/presentation-testing-tdd-bdd-wth

  • TDD: Test Driven Development (Red, Green, Refactor)
    1. Write test (watch test fail in test suite: Red)
    2. Write code (to make test pass: Green
    3. Refactor
  • BDD: Behaviour Driven Development
    • Focuses on clear understanding of software behavior from stakeholders
    • Focuses on why code should be created: thinking “from the outside in”
      1. Given [initial context]
      2. when [event occurs]
      3. then [ensure some outcomes]
  • Unit Tests
    • Testing core unit of works
    • Isolated: no interaction with other systems (e.g. databases, web services)
  • Integration Tests
    • Test the integration between 2 different “units” / systems (e.g. your core system and the database / web service)
    • Database interaction: test database or in-memory databses (H2 / SQLite)
  • Functional Tests
