Getting Started with Software Testing in Python
By: Paul Zuradzki
Date: March 14, 2024, 6 p.m.

The goal of this talk is to give you a roadmap on a journey to writing stronger code with software testing. How do you actually know if your code really works? How do you know that you didn't break something "over there" when you changed something "over here"? In this talk, we'll demonstrate common problems and solutions with respect to verifying code correctness and improving maintainability.

Maybe you've already started trying to learn testing and some things are still unclear: 
- "What is the point of a mock?",  
- "What is the difference between patching with pytest vs unittest or using a with-block vs a decorator?"
- "I get stuck writing a test as soon as I go to a nontrivial example."
