Michael Dunstan: "Testing Workshop"
Live demo of writing code and tests. Using a range of frameworks and tools including unittest, doctest and nose. See what a failing test looks like. And then I'll attempt to write some code to make that test pass. (I may need some help from the audience at that point.)
Second half will be a sightseeing tour through a variety of existing tests for real code. And some of the methods used to deal with harder testing problems. Also get to see how test runners like nose can be used on larger test suites.
About me: I'm a self employed Python developer. Mostly working on web applications.
Please bring a couple of dollars, we'll order pizza at the beginning of the session.
