I received a review copy of Python Testing Cookbook by Greg
Turnquist late last week. The timing was perfect, since we have been
talking a lot about increasing the amount of automation we use in our
testing at work. I scanned through the book quickly to get a sense for
whether I should give it to our QA team, and I liked what I found.
My review for the impatient reader:
Why I picked it up: The timing was perfect. We are applying more
test automation techniques as part of improving our QA process at
work, and I hoped to find some useful tools.
Why I finished it: It’s a fast read, especially when you skim over
the code. There are a lot of good tips, and it introduces a range of
tools, which is just what I needed.
I’d give it to: Our QA team. It will explain some of the tools the
development team is already using and introduce others that are well
suited for the needs of the QA team.
