Atomic Talk Title: Jumpstart Python Testing in 5 Minutes Flat

Python is HOT right now. It’s easy to start learning, and it feels like everything is an import away. Python is also increasingly becoming a popular choice for test automation.

In this talk, I’ll show you how to start testing your code in Python using pytest, Python’s most popular test framework. We will cover how to configure pytest, where to put tests, and how to write concise yet meaningful tests. Slides will include example code with full test cases. I’ll also share resources for learning more advanced techniques. In 5 minutes flat, you’ll see just how easy it is to pick up Python and start testing!
