I’m currently adding to my Python skills,  as it seems to be a very useful skill to have, both as a general scripting skill and also for Software Testing tasks. I’m documenting my Python learning in my Blog.

Whilst researching Python, I managed to find reference to the following uses for Python, that give an insight into how its used and how different the various uses are, hinting at a very versatile language:-

  • generating test data
  • parsing log files
  • automative tasks
  • setting up environments for tests
  • extracting performance data
  • read test data from databases, flat files or xml files
  • use it to update test results
  • use it to power a test dashboard
  • parsing XML data
  • Selenium tests
