Bring your laptops and follow along. There will be interactive examples.

Doors open at 6, and talks start at 6:20.

Pytesting with Selenium

We will use py.test (http://pytest.org) and Selenium (http://docs.seleniumhq.org/) to show off the power of fixtures (and py.test in general) while developing some simple browser tests with the Python API of Selenium WebDriver.

Virtualenv

How can you install a bunch of different versions of a bunch of different libraries for a bunch of different projects, and have them all get along? Virtualenv is the standard way to do that. This tutorial will show you how.

easy_install

Before virtualenv existed, people used something called easy_install. It still works—learn about it here.
