SCuri: Automating Unit Test Boilerplate Code for Angular Components

As I wrote about quite some time ago in this blog post, which details my solution for managing transitive dependencies for Angular unit tests . although Angular applications in general are easily testable and unit tests are first-class citizens with the framework itself, there's still some potential for improvement when in it comes to test maintainability.

GDPR Transparency: Web App for Managing GDPR-related Activities in Your Company

GDPR Transparency is a web app for managing the record of processing activities (see https://gdpr-info.eu/art-30-gdpr/) and technical and organisational measures (seehttps://gdpr-info.eu/art-32-gdpr/) as required by GDPR. Since I didn't feel comfortable with the common - rather makeshift - solution of managing GDPR-related processing activities (see https://gdpr-info.eu/art-30-gdpr/) in a spreadsheet table I've created this web app called GDPR Transparency that allows you to manage that kind of information for your business: https://bjoernkw.github.io/gdpr-transparency/ The source code is available here: https://github.com/BjoernKW/gdpr-transparency GDPR Transparency is a PWA based on Angular ...
