Product Description

By taking you through the development of a real web application from beginning to end, the updated second edition of this hands-on guide demonstrates the practical advantages of test-driven development (TDD) with Python. You’ll 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.

Author Harry J.W. Percival uses a concrete example—the development of a web site, from scratch—to teach TDD methodology and how it applies to web programming, from the basics of database integration and Javascript to more advanced topics such as mocking, Ajax, and REST APIs. It's ideal for relative newcomers and self-taught web developers looking to take their skills to the next level with a more structured approach.

About the Author

After an idyllic childhood spent playing with BASIC on French 8-bitcomputers like the Thomson T-07 whose keys go "boop" when you press them, Harry went on to study Economics and Philosophy at Cambridge University. He then spent a few years being deeply unhappy as a management consultant. Soon he rediscovered his true geek nature, and was lucky enough to fall in with a bunch of XP fanatics, working on the pioneering but sadly defunct Resolver One spreadsheet. He now works at PythonAnywhere LLP, and spreads the gospel of TDD world-wide at talks, workshops and conferences, with all the passion and enthusiasm of a recent convert.
