121: Ben's Testing Tribulations

Ben was recently tasked with removing an old feature from one of his services. As he did this, he kept breaking tests that were tightly coupled to the rendering of user interface (UI). In his mind, these tests were unnecessarily "brittle" and appeared to be testing the underlying front-end framework more so than the underlying business logic. When he brought this up in the podcast's Discord server, people disagreed. As such, we decided to dig into the topic of "what to test" more closely.
