Month 21 — Joy of TDD — Thrill of refactoring with the safety-net of tests

  1. Speed up Django Tests by Adam Johnson — As I was writing more and more tests, I wanted to find the best way to write Django tests. I could not find any resource to teach me proper way to test Django except this book. I have read a sample chapter and I thought that it would help me to learn about testing from a Django contributor. Though the focus of the book is on speeding up tests, I did learn a number of ideas about how to organize my tests better, what is the real difference between using pytest and unittest for Django testing, etc.
  2. I bought this book sometime back — Django Crash Course or A Wedge of Django — , but I started going through it again to see whether I can get more out of it. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/57911746-a-wedge-of-django
  3. I bought this highly-acclaimed book — Two Scoops of Django — which contains a lot of best practices — Given that it has been a year since I have started learning Django, I thought that I was ready for it. https://www.feldroy.com/books/two-scoops-of-django-3-x
