Adam has been writing code in one form or another for many years and obtained a BSc and MSc in Computer Science from the University of Victoria. While at UVic during his graduate studies he also discovered a passion for teaching Computer Science and taught a number of undergraduate courses. In 2010 he finished that MSc, joined the industry, found the chosen land of Python and never looked back.
Currently he finds himself working as a member of the zoo/Senior Software Developer at Bambora. When not twiddling the bits with Python at his day job he finds himself blogging and producing tutorials as the Codependent Codr at https://www.codependentcodr.com This scratches his seemingly selfless yet actually very selfish itch to teach and help other developers learn and grow.

Adam Parkin, who is known online as CodependentCodr, joins us to talk about migrating an existing Django project from unittest to pytest. Adam tells us just how easy this is.
