Testing in Django
Come hear Yipit Software Engineer, Gabriel Falcão, speak about testing in Django.
Gabriel will discuss the shortcomings of Django's built-in test framework such as its inability to separate fast tests from slow ones and how unclear it is to cover models and views. The talk will cover Python tools such as Mock, UncleBob and Sure. It will be an opportunity for beginners to learn how to use a full stack of Django testing libraries as well as experts who are looking to gear-up their tool belts.
