I gave this talk last Thursday at Chicago.pm. This talk assumes the listener knows very little about testing in Perl but likely has something for more advanced users as well.

It begins with prove and Test::More, but then moves on to explore the Test:: namespace on CPAN and talk about 20 other test modules. CPAN has a large number of modules to help with testing – its a pretty healthy ecosystem.

My goal was to create talk which not only gives new people an introduction to testing in Perl, but also provides up to date advice about which modules are useful and recommended. Feedback and corrections welcome.

As usual, this talk is both a living document and reference material. I keep my talks updated and relevant so I can refer people to them. If I’ve missed anything feel free to contribute to the github repo or leave a comment.
