Framework review: Karate

Karate is the only open-source tool to combine API test-automation, mocks, performance-testing and even UI automation into a single, unified framework. You don’t have to compile (Java) code. Just write tests in a readable syntax.

Mindfulness, a rope only you can climb

I hit the bottom. Again.

My existencial dread dragged me down hard. It wasn’t this bad since 2014. In the last month I had one big panic attack and half a dozen smaller anxiety spikes. Maybe I’ll talk about it in another post.

Apparently the only “medicine” is learning and practicing mindfulness, so my therapist recommended the book “Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World”.

The book has two theory chapters and I found so many “that’s how I feel!” moments that I decided to share this summary. If you are struggling with similar issues, give that book a try. I’ve highlighted my issues ⚠️ and my coping mechanisms ✅.
