 3. Dealing with increasingly complex test scenarios
     * Separate code and service/infrastructure testing
     * Don't keep all the tests in one `tests.py`
-    * 
+    * Use sub-module and root `tests.py` files sparingly.
+    * Give Mock (http://python-mok.sourceforge.net/) a try.
+
+4. Beyond the business logic
+    * Testing 3rd party APIs or cache
+    * These should be tested separately
+        * Better speed of tests if you're not constantly making outbound calls.
+    * Dealing with cache:
+        * Dev env doesn't usually have long-term or complete sets of cached data.
+        * Cache should be agnostic to model changes.
+        * Do object structure comparison when pulling from cache.

Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
