Preface

Like any programmer, you need to be able to produce reliable code that conforms to a specification, which means that you need to test your code. In this book, you'll learn how to use techniques and Python tools that reduce the effort involved in testing, and at the same time make it more useful—and even fun.

You'll learn about several of Python's automated testing tools, and you'll learn about the philosophies and methodologies that they were designed to support, like unit testing and test-driven development. When you're done, you'll be able to produce thoroughly tested code faster and more easily than ever before, and you'll be able to do it in a way that doesn't distract you from your "real" programming.
