This meetup is sponsored by:

Festicket (https://festicket.workable.com/): "Festival package travel startup. 50+ staff, high pay, ping pong + beer."

- James Cooke: Full clean factories

Description: Strong tests are dependent on the code that manages their setup and create the instances required for each test run. In this talk, I'll explore some different factories available for Django and how they interact with `save` and `full_clean`.

- Adam Johnson: Introducing django-perf-rec

Description: django-perf-rec is a tool we developed at YPlan for performance regression testing in Django. At the PyCon UK sprints this year I had the opportunity to open source it, so now you can use it too! This talk will serve as a brief introduction into what it does and how we use it.
