Figuring out how to test complex, distributed systems causes a lot of headaches. And the thing is, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Distributed systems serve a specific need, so its architecture is built in a way to serve that business need. Chances are, the testing methods vary as well, and I haven’t even mentioned the number of independent services that also influences the testing methodology.
Since it’s impossible to come up with a universal answer for testing distributed systems, we did interviews with 6 cool tech leaders to reveal their methods of testing.
In this post, they will talk about how their systems work and the methods they use to test them.
