This guide is the first in the Unit Testing for Scale and Profit series. In this guide we’ll look into techniques of automated testing to improve the predictability of a software change, make development more productive, and help us produce code that works as expected and yields desired results. We'll use Python for illustration purposes, but the concepts and approaches can be readily applied to many other languages.
Do you use spreadsheets to conduct your research? Do you prefer a specific tool or approach when using spreadsheets? The Research Software Camp: Beyond the Spreadsheet will focus on the uses of spreadsheets in research and first steps into further use of software in research.
"It adds development time, doing things right, but it's worth it. Our code is miles away from where it was. [The work has] really made a profound change to the way we do coding, even down to the way I write lines of code. We now understand the complexity involved in making things run smoothly – it's really been a very good learning experience"
