Data Testing Tutorial

In this tutorial, we show data scientists how to write tests. Idea hatched with Renee Chu.

After two PyCons and one SciPy conference, I became convinced of the need to apply software engineering principles to data analytics. One theme that I identified was the need for the practice of (semi-)automated data checks. After meeting with Renee Chu at PyCon 2016, we are collaborating on developing tutorial material to teach how to write data and unit tests.

Notebooks are available here.
