Episode 105 · March 11th, 2020 · 30 mins 13 secs

About this Episode

The Test Anything Protocol, or TAP, is a way to record test results in a language agnostic way, predates XML by about 10 years, and is still alive and kicking.

Matt Layman has contributed to Python in many ways, including his educational newsletter, and his Django podcast, Django Riffs.

Matt is also the maintainer of tap.py and pytest-tap, two tools that bring the Test Anything Protocol to Python.

In this episode, Matt and I discuss TAP, it's history, his involvement, and some cool use cases for it.
