James Salt, Agile Technical Test Lead at Infinity Works: “When is a unit test not a unit test…”
“The technical boundaries of test types is both boring and difficult to get right.
So often going with gut feel leads to hard-to-maintain code that doesn’t easily run in a CI context.
In this talk we look at code samples in Python and re-engineer them to be “not quite unit tests” that run easily and are easier to maintain.”
