MVP and API Thinking When Coding


TLDR; Apply MVP principles when coding. Code to the API first. The API is internal before it is external. Unit tests with classes. In code testing with classes in combination. In code API testing. External HTTP API Testing. And then if necessary -In memory and process HTTP API testing. GUI.



A long time ago, in a town which I no longer live in, I wrote a tool called Compendium-TA



Commercially that was a disaster: it was self funded, it took a long time to write and I made some poor technology decisions.



I learned MVP and API First Thinking the hard way. I’ll try and explain within.
