Tim Hopper (https://tdhopper.com/) will present part two (part one was in January) of his talk on PyTest(https://pytest.org/). Tim says, “The Pytest testing framework provides a powerful, but sometimes confusing, model for defining test fixtures for reliable, repeatable execution of tests. I will discuss dependency injection-based fixtures, the benefits of the pytest fixture model, fixture nesting and parameterization, and using the built-in fixtures.”

Tim Hopper is a senior data scientist at Cylance (https://www.cylance.com) where he works on machine learning approaches to malware detection. Prior to Cylance, he worked in blocking malicious automated web traffic and developing a Python library for nonparametric Latent Dirichlet Allocation (https://tdhopper.com/blog/understanding-probabilistic-topic-models-by-simulation/). He has a masters degree in operations research from North Carolina State University. He lives in Raleigh with his wife and energetic 1 year old.

Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W. Morgan St. The after-meeting will be around the corner at Bull McCabe’s Irish Pub. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
