Eradicating Non-Determinism in Tests

A small blog this time.

At work we sometimes have serious problems with non-deterministic tests.

Martin Fowler mentioned how this can be prevented or dealt with.1

I also noticed that these non-deterministic tests are (almost...) always in the end-to-end tests (or the functional tests, or however you wish to call them).

Martin Fowler also has something to say about those2
