The Test Anything Protocol is beginning to spread. What started out as a solution to Perl testing problems is now being used by PHP, Postgr
eSQL, C, C++, and more. It starts as a simple "1 ok", "2 ok" and then you're hooked. Seems so simple but like most starter drugs there's a more complicated underbelly.

Recently an IETF working was started to take the extisting implementations and all the extension propsals and turn them into a full standard. In this talk we'll examine the work that's been done so far. Starting with the basic building blocks (ok, not ok, comments), then some more interesting pieces (plans, pass, skip) and then into the more exciting (nested TAP, diagnostics) and experimental (logging, visualization) features.
