The course is highly recommended for Spring Boot developers who want to move beyond basic unit testing and get familiar with both best practices and various testing frameworks and approaches.

Philip has made a fantastic overview of the full testing landscape of Spring.

The videos are clear and explain details and common pitfalls in great depth. Looking forward to the rest of the course.


Michal Kupisinski

Your course is very comprehensive and there’s a need to spend a lot of time to complete it but it’s worth every minute.

 To be exact I believe that after those many hours I saved weeks or months of self-learning.
