So it turns out that the folks organizing the DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop
() want their tutorial-type presentations to run in 50-minutes timeslots
-- not 20. Which means I can actually add considerable material to the
"82% of what you need" talk I gave last week.
What else should I cover in a talk for those new to Perl testing? I
welcome your suggestions.
(Below: My own brainstorming.)
* Introduce ok() at an even more basic level: use of Test::Simple::ok()
in a program (as distinct from testing functions from a package).
* Definitionally-oriented introductions of Test::Builder and Test::Harness.
* Mention of other prominent Test::* classes (though I actually don't
use them much because I already accomplish so much with Test::More).
* Introduction of concept of coverage analysis.
* Introduction of concept of test-driven development.
* Illustration of use of 'make test' and './Build test'.
