These are the reference pages for the Programing for Testers Workshop

Programming for Testers | Badgers Croft. Abstract: We hear a lot these days about how testers should learn to code, become more technical, and have more development orientated skills. Unless you came into software testing as a ‘burnt out’ developer, it is unlikely that you have coding skills, or a deep understanding of the technical ins and outs of your current systems landscape. What can you do about it? Is programming hard? This workshop will show you how easy it actually is, as a tester, to learn how to program. Sound great, but when you are back in the office, sitting in front of a blank screen, doing this on your own will suddenly get much harder. As a Tester you know that just writing code is not enough. We will conclude by drawing up a personal development plan for how you can continue to develop your Programming skills, and how you can deploy them back in the office.

The Python language has many similarities to Perl, C, and Java. However, there are some definite differences between the languages. First Python Program Let us execute programs in different modes of programming. Interactive Mode Programming Invoking the interpreter without passing a script file as a parameter brings up the following prompt: $ python Python 2.4.3 (#1, Nov 11 2010, 13:34:43)[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information Type the following text at the Python prompt and press the Enter: >>> print "Hello, Python!

" If you are running new version of Python, then you would need to use print statement with parenthesis as in print ("Hello, Python! ") Hello, Python! Script Mode Programming Invoking the interpreter with a script parameter begins execution of the script and continues until the script is finished.

Let us write a simple Python program in a script. Print "Hello, Python! " $ python test.py #! Python Identifiers #! Raspberry Pi. Robotic Arm Kit with USB PC Interface. Learn to code | Codecademy. Programming For Testers.
