Description

py.test II - cross-platform and distributed testing (part 2 of 3)

Want to know more about advanced automated testing with Python? Use a tool that allows you to ad-hoc distribute tests to multiple CPUs for speed and to multiple platforms for compatibility checks? With tons of debugging help in failure situations? This tutorial provides in-depth information on advanced usages of the popular py.test tool. We highlight its current feature set including using and writing extensions for generating HTML pages, testing Javascript or ReST documents. We showcase and discuss ways of distributing tests across CPUs and platforms and will leave time to discuss and tackle specific scenarios brought up during the session. The tutorial format will be an interactive lecture with plenty of time for questions.
