TriPython March 2019 Meeting: Pytest Part 2: Making the most of Fixtures

Document Actions
Tim Hopper will present part two of his talk on PyTest (part one was in January). Tim says, "The Pytest testing framework provides a powerful, but sometimes confusing, model for defining test fixtures for reliable, repeatable execution of tests. I will discuss dependency injection-based fixtures, the benefits of the pytest fixture model, fixture nesting and parameterization, and using the built-in fixtures." Tim Hopper is a senior data scientist at Cylance where he works on machine learning approaches to malware detection. Prior to Cylance, he worked in blocking malicious automated web traffic and developing a Python library for nonparametric Latent Dirichlet Allocation. He has a masters degree in operations research from North Carolina State University. He lives in Raleigh with his wife and energetic 1 year old. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to "show and tell" something you've learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others. Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W. Morgan St. The after-meeting will be around the corner at Bull McCabe's Irish Pub. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
