The Software Sustainability Institute
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.
Are you involved in a project that falls within the Economics and Social Research Council (ESRC) remit? Are you an early-career or junior researcher (PhD student)? Reach out and have your voice heard!
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.
"The Institute helped us to define just how we would work together… They taught me how to become a software manager rather than just a developer... I can't speak highly enough of them"
