By taking you through the development of a real web application from beginning to end, this hands-on guide demonstrates the practical advantages of test-driven development (TDD) with Python. Youll learn how to write and run tests before building each part of your app, and then develop the minimum amount of code required to pass those tests. The result? Clean code that works.
In the process, youll learn the basics of Django, Selenium, Git, jQuery, and Mock, along with current web development techniques. If youre ready to take your Python skills to the next level, this book clearly demonstrates how TDD encourages simple designs and inspires confidence.
