Then I gave a talk on Testing in Python using Mock and Pytest. I started with explaining what Mock is and how mock objects are very flexible. Where mock could be helpful while testing and creating customized mock objects of various types, etc.


After Mock was pytest, there I explained how pytest reduces size of test files. pytest reduces boilerplates and makes it easy to test things, how pytest is backwards compatible, etc. Here are my slides

Followed by lightening talk from Jemshid was introduction from everyone, people introduced about themselves and their experience with python, etc.

Lastly was a talk from Abhijeet Kasurde on Deploying a Python/Flask application using OpenShift. First he explained what openshift is, what various services does openshift provides, how openshift makes it easy to deploy any platform project onto openshift.


He showed about creating an account on openshift, then using the openshift cmd line client rhc to create new project and then deploying a simple application onto openshift, he deployed a simple app onto openshift, then also showed just making changes and commiting them reflected those changes onto site i.e. continuous integration helps to remove intermediate delpoyment process, etc. Here are slides
