You can find more information on the speaker's site:

You written some code that works - at least on your computer, when you try to run it. Now it is time to do some optimizations, change requests, or bug fixes. How do you make sure that your code keeps working?

By writing a test suite, of course. And luckily Perl got some good tools for writing tests. This talk will give you an introduction to writing tests for Perl modules using Test::More and talk about some of the hacks needed to write good tests.

Because writing test is just as interesting and challenging as writing real code!

[If time permits I will include something about coverage testing and Smolder]
