On Tuesday, May 21, Zach Smith (VP of Engineering at Yipit) will discuss testing in Django, including its built-in tools and other useful alternatives. Learn about the successes around testing in a rapidly growing company with automated deployments and why testing matters, what you need to test, and how to structure tests effectively.

We'll kick off the event at 6p so members can meet each other, and the talk will begin around 6:30p.
