I had an idea a while ago about a program to automatically create unit tests for Python code. I talked it over with Titus Brown from the SoCal Python Interest Group and we both agreed it was a good idea. We also both agreed it would be a lot of work and neither of us had the time. I got the idea of getting of asking Disney to hire and intern to take a crack at it. We looked for a while and then Titus posted the opening on the Testing in Python mailing list. Michal Kwaitkowski responded with interest. Getting him here from Poland was a bit of a hassle but well worth it. The first week he was here we got http://pythoscope.org up and running.
Here is the logo we had a Disney artist draw for it.
It’s of Michal using pythoscope on a legacy python.
Last week we hit a milestone. We released 0.3 that includes dynamic as well as static analysis of the code before creating unit tests. Michal presented pythoscope to the SoCal Python Interest Group that I hosted at Disney. To thank him Disney provided a cake with the pythoscope logo for dessert.
