Cool stuff! There's a lot to read and digest. Thanks for all the articles and putting them together! Great work!

Just a word about mutation testing. It's just a tool in the toolkit and not sufficient as a replacement for testing. From a developer's perspective, I agree that you need a tool that would take care of a code coverage problems in a better fashion, but I would recommend not to get carried away that 'yes, we have done mutation testing, so we are all set with testing'!

Happy Holidays!

Completely agree! This applies to most important engineering work - you can't just pick one tool and hope it solves everything, you need to curate an effective toolbox and use it well.

Happy holidays and thank you for sharing your experience.
