Introducing wtfuzz: A video series about testing and open learning

Any other JavaScript developers out there feel like they can write tests, but don't necessarily understand the underlying concepts? 🙋‍♀️

Yeah, me too.

And this was exactly what I told my boss when I started as an Open Source Engineer at Meeshkan earlier this month. I've been working as a frontend developer for the past two years and I've written a lot of tests, but I never took the time to really learn the fundamentals.

A large part of my role at Meeshkan will be building and maintaining Unmock, an open-source library to help you fuzz test your REST API calls. So because I will need to learn these things anyway, my boss was like... Why don't you create a YouTube series and learn out in the open?

My reaction: 😬😬😬😅 Ok!

So that's why we're launching a new YouTube series called wtfuzz. The series will be a collection of 5-minute videos all about testing basics, a deep dive into fuzz testing, how to use unmock-js and whatever else pops up during my onboarding.

If this sounds like something you'd enjoy, please subscribe to the Unmock YouTube channel and comment on this post with any topics you think we should cover. We'll also be publishing transcripts of each episode here on Dev.to.

See you on YouTube 👋
