The Oracle at Delphi Neither Speaks nor Conceals

Sam Galson at CityJS 2019

The "exotic" types of testing that interest me here (fuzz testing, generative testing, property-based testing, metamorphic testing and mutation testing) are not talked about much in the JS community. I believe that is not because they are known to be unhelpful, but rather because little is known about them at all. Libraries to enable these sorts of testing are still immature, but now reaching a point where it is possible for developers to try them out and come to their own opinions about the value of these testing approaches. My aim in this talk is therefore to educate about alternative testing methodologies and encourage the trialling of new tools so that the community can better gauge the value of the techniques they make possible.
