Best of python testing tutorials, now in epub, mobi, and pdf

I’ve put together a really good collection of posts, including tutorials for pytest, unittest, and nose, into an eBook format. Actually, three formats.

I want it!

This book is still a work in progress…
What does that mean?

I’ve updated the posts on unittest introduction and fixtures.
The nose chapters, and pytest chapters are still a little glitchy.
However, with proceeds from the book sale to help offset the cost, I’m now writing on a nice laptop that will hopefully get me writing more.

So, Updates are coming.
If you buy now at $5, you’ll get notified when things get fixed.
