“Building software is not like building cars - or is it?”

'Building software is not like building cars' is an oft quoted phrase still used by people in the software industry.

I’ve actually done both of these things professionally and this is my take on the truth or otherwise of this statement.

I will highlight similarities and differences of the two and hopefully you’ll gain an appreciation of a different viewpoint of the processes and practices that we all use everyday

“Every code coverage tool you've ever used is measuring the wrong thing (on purpose)”

He’s passionate about reliable software and data modelling, championing relentless automated testing, refactoring, and simplicity.

This talk is a deep-ish dive into code coverage tools for unit testing. We cover what code coverage is attempting to measure, what it actually measures, and why.
