Thanks! I finally posted it in a Programming group, wich I thinks is more suitable for unit testing related  stuff as is a java specific project. If someone is curious here is the link: https://github.com/konum/JUnit-Awards

That is an interesting experiment. The article comments also shows that it is tough to run these kind of tests because there are many ways to write them. It would take an expert with each framework to have a clear picture for what each is good at. Vanilla JS should always be faster at simple tasks though. React would probably get less efficient as we inject real DB data and ajax calls in the app.

I've ordered take out from here twice, both times online. The first time, I go to pick up the food and there's nobody around, and I have to walk toward the back to get anyone's attention. The second time, they "didn't receive my order" until I pressured them, and then they "didn't check for new online orders". The food has been good, though, so three stars. Just don't order online!

Update: I was contacted by the owner regarding my poor experience, and he offered to refund the money I paid for the glasses, which I accepted. He apologized for my sub-par experience and I also received a written apology from the manager, as well. Thanks for the great customer service, guys! Last year, I had my eyes checked here. I had my eyes lasered a decade ago and have some side effects, one of which is a faint double image of everything which is especially apparent at night time or in low light conditions. The optometrist who checked my eyes suggested I get glasses to use while driving at night to alleviate the issue. I clarified with him that glasses would fix the faint double image problem and he assured me that they would. I agreed to get the glasses, and was very disappointed. First, they did nothing for my double image problem, and second, they give me headaches if I wear them for an extended period of time. I went back to return the glasses, and was told no refunds. I spent $400 on these glasses and they do nothing for me. The manager called me at a later date and told me exactly the same thing for some reason. I would not recommend going here at all.

My wife and I were in the market for a new SUV and decided to check out the Q5 at this dealership. I own an A4, so we were biased toward the Q5, but the level of service we received at this location sealed the deal. Vince was our sales guy and from the moment we first started talking to him we received nothing but stellar service from him. He was knowledgeable, attentive and answered both my and my wife's questions without hesitation. We had a toddler with us for most of the experience and Vince never showed any problem talking to either my wife or I alone as the other would have to run after the toddler, which is something we really appreciated. We corresponded a number of times via email to nail down the specific options package we wanted and eventually to the vehicles available. Once we'd decided on the vehicle we'd like to purchase, we were handed off to Kyla, the finance manager at the dealership. The extraordinary level of service continued with Kyla, as we were provided with concrete numbers for the different methods of financing the vehicle. Kyla also drew from her extensive personal experience for owning Audi vehicles (the Q5 in particular), which was very helpful in allowing us to make the appropriate decisions regarding warranty and after care products. Kyla and I also corresponded via email a number of times to go over numbers in greater detail and to schedule a time to pick up the new vehicle. When we arrived to pick up the vehicle, Vince was available to walk us through every facet of the new Q5, covering all portions of the exterior, the interior and the infotainment system. The Q5 and the A4 that I own share a number of features, but Vince's demonstration showed me things that applied to my car that I was unaware of. Vince even put a bow on the hood of the Q5 because my wife's birthday was just around the corner. From start to finish, my wife and I were pleased with the level of service we received at Royal Oak Audi and would definitely recommend this dealership to anyone who will listen. Thanks for reading!

My wife and I were in the market for a new SUV and wanted to check out the X3. We enter the dealership and are approached by a sales guy. It's immediately apparent that sales guy wants absolutely nothing do with my wife and wants only to talk to me. This vehicle was to be my wife's car; she'd be the one driving it and had plenty of questions to ask. The sales guy had other ideas, though, and would listen to my wife's question then direct the answer to me. I even told him to talk to my wife instead of talking to me, and he did so for a minute or two, but eventually directed all his energy toward me. Despite this, my wife wanted to test drive the X3 to compare it with other luxury compact SUVs on the market, so she booked an appointment. My wife shows up ten minutes before her appointment and is kept waiting half an hour past the appointment time before the sales person finally shows up. The sales guy was busy with other customers, but what's the point in having an appointment if you can't make the time? Despite being told that I wouldn't be present, the sales guy badgered my wife asking when I was going to show up. I've never felt so insulted on my wife's behalf before in my life. Judging from this experience, I will never purchase anything from this BMW dealership. It disgusts me that this behavior is not discouraged at this location. The sales guy's name was Tarun. The parking lot is also atrocious. There're are hundreds of cars for sale in the parking lot and customer parking appeared to be limited to four spots (five if you included the handicapped) in front of the dealership. I rolled down the window to ask where we should park, as all of these spots were full, and we were waved "around back" down a one way road. A sales guy was moving a BMW vehicle up that same road.
