This video covers Part 5: Testing of section “Getting Started” from the Django Documentation.

Automated Testing is an important factor of programming, also it’s not easy to comprehend at beginner level. Therefore, I recommend reading the whole tutorial Part 5: Testing in the Django Documentation. At first, as a newcomer, you might feel it’s a little overwhelming. However, just read it and don’t worry too much about its “wide range of concepts and codes”. You’ll gradually understand its idea and concept.

So, hereinafter I just placed the “timestamps”, and will leave the text for you to read directly from the Django Documentation.


00:00:00 – Intro
Similar to the previous videos, before we start I rearrange my windows to dark-mode (to reduce eye strain). For internet browser (Chrome, Brave, Edge, Firefox) “dark-mode” I’m using the extension named “Dark Reader”. Also I’m placing the “text” window and “coding” window to be side-by-side to easier comparing while doing.
