Testing in Python Birds of a Feather / TiP BoF


This will be the third annual Testing In Python Birds of a Feather or TiP BoF.

TiP stands for Testing in Python. There's a mailing list of folks ( ) who care about testing and methodologies, be they Agile, TDD, Stupidity Driven Development, etc. Discussions run the gamut of code organization, testing frameworks, continuous integration, web testing, etc.

We provide a venue for people to give presentations about testing related projects. The TiP BoF generally follows this format:

  • Guided Stretching with Feihong Hsu
  • Opening Remarks
  • Lightning Talks

Lightning Talks are done on a first come, first served basis. There will be a sign-up sheet provided at the BoF itself (never prior too). We encourage the 5 minute rule, but won't throw anything at anyone if they go over 5 minutes. There is feedback given on the projects (WARNING: The feedback given may contain speech of the adult nature).

Please check out Alfredo Deza's photos from TiP BoF 2010.

TiP BoF is alcohol-free this year. If you decide to bring alcohol be prepared to be asked to leave by hotel management staff.


Officially: Saturday March 12 @ 7:00 PM

Organizers (you know who you are): We should get together @ 6:00 PM to coordinate everything.


We'll be reserving Hanover C & D on Saturday night. This should be twice the space than last year. The Hyatt will be removing the wall between the two rooms, so we should have more than enough space ... I think.
