In this episode Donn and Kaushik sit down with Instacart Engineer Colin White to discuss a new image library he has created called Coil.
Coil is a Kotlin-first image library that focuses on ease of use, simplicity and extensibility. In this episode we ask him the question you’re probably wondering … “Why create an image library, isn’t this a solved problem already?” and then move onto the details of how the library works, and what it offers developers.
From Donn’s perspective – It’s an interesting library and gives you what you need with minimal footprint but offers you the extensibility that you’d want in the future. Its a good balance of “just enough” and “I might need this”.
In this episode, Donn talks about public speaking and how it can help you grow your career.
He dives in by telling a story of his first speaking engagement and how he was riddled with fear, insecurity, doubt and anxiety. He then talks about why speaking can help you grow your career and life leaps and bounds. He wraps up with possible things you can speak about when starting out as well as where you can get your break into the speaking circuit.
Marcel Schnelle joins Donn in this episode to talk about how to get your application under test and some steps to go from scared to confident in your testing process. The second half of the show they dive in deep to JUnit 5 and its new features.
JUnit 5 is backwards compatible with JUnit 4 and offers a slew of new features and extensibility points which make the framework much more appealing going forward. We’re convinced you’ll enjoy this episode and leave wanting to get your app under test – even more than it already is.
