This course follows on from the Pluralsight "Python Fundamentals" course, and has more detail about unit testing with Python. We will cover libraries and frameworks such as unittest, doctest and py.test. The aim is to help you to write unit tests that improve code quality, and also support future development. Good unit tests should provide immediate value in terms of reduced debugging and better design, and the investment writing them should pay back over the whole lifetime of your software.
