Property-based Testing in Practice



Alex Chan talks about property-based testing and this style of testing through the lens of two libraries: Hypothesis and AFL, with examples and testing patterns that we can apply in other code.


Alex Chan is a software developer at the Wellcome Trust in London, writing search back-ends for the Trust’s collection of artifacts and library books. He also dabbles in open-source Python, including HTTP/2 networking stacks and testing libraries.
