Test & Code: Python Software Testing & Engineering

Test & Code is a weekly podcast hosted by Brian Okken. The show covers a wide array of topics including software engineering, development, testing, Python programming, and many related topics. When we get into the implementation specifics, that's usually Python, such as Python packaging, tox, pytest, and unittest. However, well over half of the topics are language agnostic, such as data science, DevOps, TDD, public speaking, mentoring, feature testing, NoSQL databases, end to end testing, automation, continuous integration, development methods, Selenium, the testing pyramid, and DevOps.



episode 90: Dynamic Scope Fixtures in pytest 5.2 - Anthony Sotille

pytest 5.2 was just released, and with it, a cool fun feature called dynamic scope fixtures.

We also talk about parametrized testing and really what is fixture scope and then what is dynamic scope.Special Guest: Anthony Sottile.Sponsored By:
