This episode is carbon neutral.
What is the role, the core purpose of writing tests for your application? Should you write more unit tests and fewer integration tests, or is it actually the other way around? You may have heard of the test pyramid with unit tests building the foundation. In this episode we talk about a variation on that theme called the test column. We talk about this and more with Brian Okken on this episode of Talk Python To Me.
