I want to inform you that my future articles will be published on timdeschryver.dev and indepth.dev.

I’ve been writing blog posts consistently for almost 2 years now, and most of my blog posts are published here, on Medium.

Until a couple of months ago I was happy with the platform, it even allowed me to get in touch with the AngularInDepth publication and its great writers.

With this last post on Medium, I want to thank you for reading my articles.
I also want to invite you to my personal blog at timdeschryver.dev, and to the InDepth platform.

To keep being notified of my future articles, give me a follow on Twitter and subscribe to my Newsletter.

Thanks again, and see you soon!

This post is not a post that says you have to have between X and Y percentage coverage throughout your code base. It’s an introduction post to code coverage, how to read it, and how you can use it in your workflow.

Code coverage

Code coverage tells you which code has been executed during a test and how many times. I’m not telling to aim for X percentage of coverage, because this is entirely dependent on what you’re creating. Targeting for 100% code coverage is often a mistake as it will take a lot of time (to get there and to maintain)…
