About the Book
Nowadays developers are expected to provide code verified by automated tests. And this is good.
Unfortunately, not all of the tests we write are good enough... This book provides numerous examples of improvements you can introduce to make your tests stronger, more readable, and more resilient to changes. You will learn about real-life issues, and discover ways of overcoming them. You will get to know new techniques for writing high-quality tests.
The goal of this book is to teach you how to write tests in such a way that all the effort you put into them really pays off!

About the Author
Tomek Kaczanowski is a technical team leader from Krakow, Poland. He has a strong interest in code quality, testing and automation - preferably all three together. Combining technical with soft skills, he also ventures into the realms of mentoring, teaching, lecturing and article writing, not to mention preaching sermons to the unconverted in the hope of redeeming them (or at least their code)! He hates doing things manually, and is allergic to empty src/test/java directories.
Tomek believes that by working with legacy code, and improving it, he can make the world a better place. To his disappointment, the world does not seem to care all that much about his efforts.
Apart from all this weirdness, he is a pretty normal person – a husband, father of three, and cat owner.
