I was looking for some material on proper python testing in order to improve my QA skills and after some “Googling” came across “Python Testing: Beginner’s Guide”. My first impulse was to hit Amazon and see if they had it and if I could buy an ebook version. Sadly, they only had the “dead tree” version, so I decided to check if the publisher, PackT Publishing, had an alternative.
Boy, was I glad I hit their web site! Not only there was an ebook version of that book, but they do not password protect them, giving you complete control over your purchase!!! You can alsocopy text from it, which makes your life really easy when you’re following along and want to copy some of the code being described!
Needless to say I purchased the ebook version and have already allocated my weekend to read it, so you can expect a review next week. In the meantime, here’s a free chapter (PDF) for you to get a taste for the book: Chapter 5: When Doctest isn’t Enough: Unittest to the Rescue
