How did you become a software developer/tester/engineer/lead, etc? Odds are we all are missing some important information to do our jobs most effectively. This podcast is an attempt to fill those education gaps. I focus on testing and process questions like "How do I know it works?", "How do I effectively test?", and the like. But really, anything in the software development realm is fair game.

I’m a test automation engineer and love using python to get things done quickly, so its awesome to see a podcast dedicated to all things python testing related. I think this podcast really fills a gap and Brian is off to a great start! Hope he sticks with it.
Slow dive into testing
A good start to a podcast series that seems to be a slow, deep, dive into the world of test driven development.
Much needed and well done
Testing for me has always seemed to be a necessary evil, not so much after listening to this show which dives into testing with python in a clear, concise manner. I’m excited to see what’s next.
