Perl has a long history of automated testing, as well as great tools to support
that testing. Someone new to Perl or new to testing might wonder why they would
"waste" time on testing when there's so much code to write.

In this short talk, we'll cover the basics of the Test Anything Protocol, the
Test::More module and how to use them to your benefit. We'll also talk about
the benefits to the developer of testing code. Finally, we'll touch on test
coverage with Devel::Cover.

By the end of the talk, you should know how to use Test::More and other Test::*
modules and have some idea how automated testing helps improve your code and
document your interfaces and intentions.
