Setting Up iOS Logic Tests [Part 2]Wed Feb 13 2013 | Mark Struzinski
Today, I’m going to go through setting up some initial code to use the 3rd party libraries to make sure that the libraries are working. Then we’ll set up logic tests and see what breaks with CocoaPods (spoiler: compiler errors ahead!).
Setting up iOS Logic Tests [Part 1]Fri Feb 8 2013 | Mark Struzinski
I’m continuing on my task to get a full project using iOS unit tests and integration tests. My first step is to set up logic tests in Xcode. I recently watched an excellent unit testing course on Lynda. In that course, Ron Lisle goes over the advantages of using logic tests. The most compelling factor in using logic tests over application tests is speed.
Unit Testing SeriesFri Feb 1 2013 | Mark Struzinski
I have wanted to get better at unit testing and the tooling around it for some time. I usually start out determined to get a good amount of the code covered by unit tests, and to possibly get some UI tests built around user interactions.

Keyboard Maestro macro to open in browser from ReadKitWed Jan 16 2013 | Mark Struzinski
I recently switched to ReadKit for reading Instapaper articles on my mac. I switched over from Read Later (no longer available). Read Later was my app of choice for a long time, but it is no longer in active development. The team was hired by Pocket, and they are working solely on the mac app now. Read Later was good, but some much needed updates were never implemented. The display for articles was frequently skewed, and the app had started to crash a lot.
