Automated Testing of Large Projects with Perl

Presenter: Andy Lester
Location: Calvin College: Prince Center (directions)
Date: Thursday September 25, 2003
Time: 11:30 AM

Perl's automated testing tools have always been geared towards testing of CPAN modules, but the Perl testing framework is excellent for automating large software projects, too.

You'll learn to test all code in the project, even if it's not Perl; how to write a website testing robot with WWW::Mechanize and HTML::Lint; how to test your database integrity regularly, and more.

You'll also learn the best practices and culture of automated testing, how to get started automating an existing project, and 15 specific tips to take home with you.

About the presenter:

Andy Lester has been a professional programmer for seventeen years, and Perl evangelist for a decade. By day, he manages programmers for Follett Library Resources in McHenry, IL. By night, he writes for The Perl Journal, beats on his CPAN modules, and does technical editing for various publishers.
