I created a TestingToolsPanel page on the PyCon07 wiki. Please feel free to add your own testing-related topics of interest and/or questions for the authors. If you are a testing tool author, please consider participating in the panel. You can leave a comment here or send me an email (grig at gheorghiu.net) and let me know if you're interested in participating.
Here's what I have so far on the Wiki page:
I maintain a "Python Testing Tools Taxonomy" (PTTT) Wiki page.
Here are some of the tools listed on the PTTT page:
- unit testing tools (unittest/doctest/py.test/nose/Testoob/testosterone)
- mock/stub testing tools (python-mock/pmock/stubble)
- Web testing tools (twill/webunit/zope.testbrowser/Pamie/paste.test.fixture)
- acceptance testing tools (PyFit/texttest/FitLoader)
- GUI testing tools (pywinauto/WATSUP/winGuiAuto/guitest)
- source code checking tools (pylint/pychecker/pyflakes)
- code coverage tools (coverage/figleaf/Pester)
- other miscellaneous testing tools (pysizer/pymetrics/svnmock/testtools)
I propose to have a panel where authors of some of these tools would discuss and take questions on topics such as:
- what need prompted the creation of the testing tool
- what type of testing does the tool belong to (unit, functional, acceptance, system, performance)
- what specific features does the tool offer that other tools lack
- what are the most common testing scenarios you have seen in your user base
- are there any platform- or OS-specific gotchas related to the tool
- how extensible is the tool (plugins etc.)
- how easy to learn is the tool
- how well tested is the tool
- how well documented is the tool
Just a reminder that these 'proposals' need to make it into the proposal system by the Oct 31st deadline.
Panelists can be added to the proposal post deadline.
Doug, I added this panel idea as a talk proposal yesterday -- it's #21.
I just noticed that!
I was comming back to make my appologies.
I guess I am getting over zealous in my drum beating up to the deadline ^_^
(also excuse my spelling)
