In the following tutorial you’ll learn how to test a Django application and the thought process behind testing and refactoring
When it comes to backend my tools of choice are Django and Python. Speed of development (particulary useful for rapid prototyping) and the excellent test coverage I can get almost out of the box are the major boons for me.
