The Importance of Being Tested

We all know and agree that testing is important, but it’s not always the easiest thing to do, especially on Android. Managing Views, Lifecycles, Networks, and basically everything else, can be an excruciating pain. Also, it’s not always straight forward to let the rest of team aware of why we should be testing in the first place. But fear not! We will walk together through this journey, starting from the very basics on how to test, with ready to use snippets for common situations, small refactoring and creative ideas to be more certain about the code you ship. Hurry up, it’s time to sail the sea of testing!

Born in Italy in 1987, passionate for everything that switches on and off and particularly for handheld and wearable devices.
I love to learn new languages such as Kotlin, patterns and everything Android-related. I recently joined The New York Times Android team as Android Engineer.
