Managing the Test Data Nightmare
By: Andrew Knight
Test data for automated tests can be a nightmare to manage. Data must be
prepped in advance, loaded before testing, and cleaned up afterwards.
Sometimes, teams don't have much control over the data in their systems
under test—it's just dropped in, and it can change arbitrarily. Hard-coding
values into tests that reference system tests can make the tests brittle,
especially when running tests in different environments. In this talk, I'll
teach strategies for managing each type of test data: test case variations,
test control inputs, config metadata, and product state. We will cover how
to "discover" test data instead of hard-coding it, how to pass inputs into
automation (including secrets like passwords), and how to manage data in
the system. After this talk, you will wake up from the nightmare and handle
test data cleanly and efficiently like a pro!

Bootstrapping your Local Python Environment
By: Calvin Hendryx-Parker
You cracked open your brand new Mac or Linux dream machine and low and
behold, it has Python out-of-the-box and ready to roll… Or so you think?
Maybe you want to get started doing Python development on Windows and see
that you can grab Python easily from the Microsoft Store. Should you? Let’s
talk about getting started with the end in mind and making sure your
development computer doesn’t become the next superfund site
https://xkcd.com/1987/. <https://xkcd.com/1987/> We’ll quickly go through a
tour of the various options such as pyenv, venv, virtualenv, conda and
Docker as great ways to make sure you can develop in a sane environment.
