I’ve set up a version-controlled repository for the code retreat.
This time around I have branches with the boilerplate/scaffolding code for several testing frameworks including:
* DocTest for Python
* PHPUnit & SimpleTest for PHP
Had fun writing some code for custom processing of a Gravity form submission. I like how it turned out, mostly. I felt like I had an even better version, but the language couldn’t support it. Check it out.
Just a new face I got. Jus’ sayin’
Got my new glasses from http://goggles4u.com. The lenses are so clean that the world looks new and shiny! I need a haircut/makeover. 🙂
I’m very excited to let you all know that registration is open for the code retreat organized by Prairie Dev Con. Go register here.
I always get excited for code retreats. If you have time and want to know more before you sign up, you can read my previous posts about them here and here, or get in touch and I’ll try to convince ya 🙂
doctest – Testing through documentation
This page has a somewhat in-depth set of examples for writing unit tests in Python with doctest.
http://pymotw.com/2/doctest/#working-around-whitespace specifically shows how to get around some whitespace formatting gotchas.
I spent several hours today creating the specs for WinniVote’s signup feature.
I feel it is a valuable investment of my time for several reasons:
- WinniVote’s current tests do not feel high quality, so hopefully my examples help other WinniVote devs.
- I’ve been thinking about what quality tests look like for a while now, but have not had a chance to get feedback from other developers, so I’m interested what others think about my style.
- I look forward to the further evolution of my style based on the feedback I might receive.
<?php echo “Remember me next time”; ?>
The upcoming Prairie Dev Con ( April ) is doing a free code retreat.
You can not sign up yet, but sign up to the mailing list on that page to learn when registration opens.
I consider the progress I’ve made from “That is unacceptable” to “I need to be more accepting of that” one of my greatest gains in 2013.
