Automated testing is important for efficient software development, catching bugs within minutes and saving valuable developer time. Mutation Testing validates test suites by altering production code logic. When tests pass despite code mutations, it signals missing test cases.
In Kotlin Multiplatform, writing platform-specific implementations is sometimes necessary. However, these implementations can introduce inconsistencies between platforms if not properly tested and verified. In this article, we will explore how to tackle this problem.
Automated tests are an integral part of developing software, they help catch bugs before they reach the users and save developers time by cutting down manual testing.
Having a good test suite helps with catching regressions / bugs a lot faster, and gives developers more confidence when merging / releasing their product. In this series, I'll share my recommendations for improving your tests.
