This 8-video course explores the unit-test framework in Python. To take this course, you should have experience in Python programming and the use of the Linux shell. The unit-test framework (also known as PyUnit) is modeled on JUnit and simplifies the automation of tests for Python applications. You will learn to use the unit-test framework to define tests for your application source code to ensure that it behaves in a specified manner. In this course, learners will write a sample test, and then expand the test scripts to include multiple tests. You will learn how to sequence the execution of tests in scripts, and how to filter out tests which do not require a specific run. Next, you will learn how to pass the output of test executions to identify the results of your tests, and how to diagnose test failures. You will learn how to run specific tests from among multiple tests in your scripts. Finally, this course demonstrates how to skip the execution of tests by using the skip decorator.
