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.
Some information about software testing is just wrong.
I'm not talking about opinions. I have lots of opinions and they differ from other peoples opinions. I'm talking about misinformation and old information that is no longer applicable.
Creating maintainable test suites for complex systems. The episode describes some complexities involved with hardware testing, then shares techniques for shifting complexity out of the test cases. The techniques are applicable to the testing of any complex system.
Test Driven Development, TDD, can be intimidating to try.
In this episode, Chris May shares his experience with adding testing and TDD to his work flow.
His story will help lots of people overcome testing anxiety.
This is a "Yay! It's PyCon 2019" episode.
PyCon is very important to me.
But it's kinda hard to put a finger on why.
So I figured I'd ask more people to help explain why it's important.
I ask a few simple questions to people about Python and PyCon and get some great insights into both the language popularity and the special place this conference holds to many people.
Nina Zakharenko gives some great advice about giving tech talks.
We talk about a blog series that Nina wrote called "The Ultimate Guide To Memorable Tech Talks". Of course, we don't rehash the whole blog series, but this episode is full of great help and encouragement for your own public speaking adventures.
