Description

In the age of agile software development, proper test coverage can play an important role in the lifecycle of a product. Proper testing can reduce risk of regression issues and increase the resiliency of the software. Django is a highly pragmatic framework that makes developing powerful data-driven applications easy. It also comes with a handy set of built in test tools to get proper test coverage off the ground quickly any easily. In this course, Testing Django Applications, you'll learn about those tools and get to work testing a custom Django application. Next, you'll explore how to write effective unit and integration tests, how to measure test coverage, and how to design a testing approach that works. You'll work with some third party tools to perform simple UI testing and measure test coverage, and when you're done, you'll have a well-tested Django application that can serve as a working example for future test development.
