About this Episode

Corey Quinn is the Chief Cloud Economist at The Duckbill Group. He's also a podcaster and writes a newsletter. And he also automates things with Python. But he doesn't write tests. Let's find out why.

Reason for the interview. Rough summary of a twitter conversation:

  • Corey: What podcasts should I try to get an invite onto?
  • ToonArmyCaptain: Python Bytes, Test & Code, Talk Python
  • Corey: But... I don't test my code, "crappy Python" is all I write, and I'd feel like a giant imposter. So yeah, I'd be game. link
  • So here we are.
