Got some code that you've written that would be useful to others, but actually releasing it feels like too much new stuff to figure out? Releasing software does take some work, but this talk will take you step-by-step through the process with specific recommendations and tools. We'll cover preparing your code for release, packaging it, releasing it, and maintaining it over time.
The hardest part of testing is getting the ball rolling. Once you've picked your tools and started writing tests, the added confidence you have in making changes to your code, and the time you save in repetitive manual testing, can quickly become addictive! If you never got over that initial speedbump, or you've tried testing but it hasn't yet clicked, this talk is for you.
A deep dive into writing tests with Django, covering Django's custom test- suite-runner and the testing utilities in Django, what all they actually do, how you should and shouldn't use them (and some you shouldn't use at all!). Also, guidelines for writing good tests (with or without Django), and my least favorite things about testing in Django (and how I'd like to fix them).
Pip and virtualenv: many use them; not so many understand just how they work their magic. If you're a pip/virtualenv user but haven't yet dared crack the lid (or you have, and found it a bit difficult to follow), come along for a fast-paced guided tour. Knowing these tools will help you make more effective use of them, and might also turn you into a contributor.
