Outside-In TDD: an intermediate testing workshop with Python, with Harry Percival

4th April 2016 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at In The Brain of Harry Percival

Are you interested in TDD and Python? Join us for this In The Brain of Harry Percival to know the difference between a good test and a bad one!

You've started doing TDD and testing in Python, you've got the basics of unit testing and mocks, but you're starting to wonder about what makes a good test vs a bad test, how "purist" you should be about your testing, when you should mock and when you should avoid it, and how to fit low-level unit tests with higher-level end-to-end / functional / integration tests. This workshop will used a worked example to work through some of these issues.

Harry Percival

After an idyllic childhood spent playing with BASIC on French 8-bit computers like the Thomson T-07 whose keys go "boop" when you press them, Harry spent a few years being deeply unhappy with Economics and management consultancy. Soon he rediscovered his true geek nature, and was lucky enough to fall in with a bunch of XP fanatics, working on the pioneering but sadly defunct Resolver One spreadsheet. He now works at PythonAnywhere LLP, and spreads the gospel of TDD world-wide at talks, workshops and conferences, with all the passion and enthusiasm of a recent convert.
