A hands-on introduction to software testing

by Federico Caboni for EuroPython 2012

Software testing is an activity that’s all too often neglected by novice and expert programmers alike.

During this training we’ll work through both high level concepts and specific techniques to get you started with Python software testing.

We’ll start with basic concepts and unit testing, using PyUnit, and we’ll build up to fancier stuff like:

  • mock objects;
  • test driven development;
  • fuzzing;
  • automated web application testing;
  • performance testing;
  • meaning of life.

I’ll also give you sound business motivations to persuade that annoying manager of yours who thinks testing is “a waste of time” (the fool!) :-)

The training will be, of course, Python-centric but most ideas we’ll talk about are usable in pretty much every language and environment you could happen to work with.

Prerequisites: OOP, basic Python programming. No previous testing experience required.
