A lot of engineering managers dismiss this question because they know the answer: either have your team write more tests in between new development projects, or outsource the test writing. However, with the introduction of a new AI-powered tool that can write code, senior decision-makers have another option open to them.
The Quality Assurance Engineering (QAE) team at Goldman Sachs was searching for a way to efficiently boost code coverage without increasing manual effort. Using Diffblue Cover, Goldman Sachs doubled code coverage for one of their legacy applications—from 36% to 72%—in less than 10% of the time it would have taken to do manually. Read the full story.
A lot of people are software developers, which makes it seem like a totally normal thing to be able to type a few characters into a terminal and generate outcomes that run financial systems, control air traffic and power the world. But when you think about it more closely, programming as a concept is pretty mind-blowing. Here are a few of the stranger things out there about computers and software development.
Diffblue Playground is our free-to-use tool that demonstrates the AI behind Diffblue Cover by automatically creating unit tests for any Java code entered into it. A little known capability of this tool is that it can do more than help you juggle writing tests and developing new code—my colleague Jamie Munro and I have discovered that it can also be used to create brand new juggling tricks.
