Excellent breakdown, Daniel! Mutation testing is a game-changer, moving us beyond the misleading allure of code coverage. 🤔 The analogy with bread toppings is spot-on—quality matters more than quantity

Do you incorporate this in the deployment pipeline? If the score is not 100% for example, do you fail the build?

This is so new to me!

I code in golang. I never heard of mutation testing before as a concept.

(Probably done it manually without putting a name to it)

It's very useful to know the difference types of it.

I am sure if I searched I can find a lib for it in Go. (Or implement one it does not sound too complicated)

Will definitely recommend this to my team!

I am sure it will save us a lot of wrong measurements.

Thanks, Daniel!
