Integration testing – it’s not a choice, it’s a no-brainer!

Seems like these days I’m all about integration testing. 📝🔍

Yeah, unit tests? They’re alright but, man, do they fall apart when something changes. Brittle like a stale cookie! They got their use though, especially with complex stuff that needs untangling.🕸️

End to end tests? They’re cool. They let you see the system doing its thing, but boy, they lose me when something goes wrong. 🤷‍♂️ Drives me up the wall! Sometimes, I just let ’em be (‘oh, that one breaks all the time’) – fixing ’em is like solving a Rubik’s cube blindfolded. 🙄

Enter the unsung hero, integration tests! 🥳🍾 For me, they’re the golden ticket. They give you the best bang for your buck. They hit that sweet spot; they’re high-level enough to check if the system’s good to go, and low enough to spot what went south with a decent debug. 👀💡

So, which is your ‘go-to’ testing method, and why?
