Unit Testing is a core concept in software construction. As more and more people write Zeek Scripts, it became apparent that a pragmatic Unit Testing library that provides test suites, test cases, and assertions with a rich test result output was needed. I wrote the ZTest library to provide just that! In this talk, I will discuss what ZTest is, show why it's useful, give some examples to demonstrate how it works, and also discuss what I think is a good way forward to improve the Unit Testing process when writing Zeek Scripts (both in packages/plugins and in the core Zeek code). The ZTest framework is open source and currently lives at https://github.com/corelight/ztest.
