Rapid multi-purpose testing (#81)


Rapid multi-purpose testing

Presented by Holger Krekel

Want to rapidly test code, javascript or documents on different Python Interpreters and versions? This talk gives an overview on new py.test features of the last year. I'll discuss the minimal-boilerplate testing and new plugin model and give an overview on which testing needs are covered so far, for example:
