The Go programming language
There’s some ‘got’ and ‘want’ pointers in https://github.com/golang/go/wiki/TestComments .
But yeah, I didn’t even realize this was a very Google thing :).
GOlang Property TestER
Does anyone have experience with Gopter, a Golang Property Based testing library? https://github.com/leanovate/gopter
Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.
Randomized testing for Go
Go tests and benchmarks are so easy to write and run: just add TestFoo and BenchmarkFoo functions to a bar_test.go file, and "go test" does the rest. It's currently doable, but it requires a 3rd party library (go-fuzz) and a bit of fluffing around. This will make fuzz testing an equally first-class citizen with standard Go tooling (just add FuzzFoo), and as such we'll probably see a lot more people testing with fuzzing.
I used go-fuzz in GoAWK and it found several bugs (see https://benhoyt.com/writings/goawk/#fuzz-testing), and almost everyone who's done fuzz testing has similar reports. Certainly go-fuzz has found many, many bugs in Go itself: https://github.com/dvyukov/go-fuzz#trophies
For what it's worth, I wrote an article for LWN about the upcoming support for built-in fuzzing in Go: https://lwn.net/Articles/829242/ (of course, if you want full details, read the full proposal).
🏆 Collection of bugs uncovered by fuzzing Rust code
Fuzzing is still very relevant in Rust. It tends to find panics rather than segfaults, but that's still bugs.
Diem’s mission is to build a trusted and innovative financial network that empowers people and businesses around the world.
Just to add, we're a heavy user of fuzzing in Diem and we found a good number of bugs thanks to it : )
