Experience

  • Mutation Testing for Salesforce
    https://www.salesforce.com/video/3620282/

    A side-project written in Python, Angular, Java, and Salesforce APIs that evaluates unit test quality in Salesforce. The product is linked to a sandbox where it fetches all code and test classes. It then mutates the code by adding bugs (statistically proven mistakes developers do) and runs the tests to see if they are able to catch these new bugs. If the tests fail, then they are good. Learn more in the Dreamforce presentation link attached.
