- founders__capital_percentage:
    type: [int]

Processing rules

=> by lawyers!!

DSL in yaml + py (ast)

Human risks...

- total_capital:
    type: int
    forula: "sum(foundrs__capital)"

=> syntax checks!

=> tests!!

Like pyflakes, pylint...

OK

Use parametrized tests?

When?

Lots of similar objects => data processing, functional-style code

Pros

- easy to write

- total control on output

Cons

- updates are more involved

- cross-test-runners?

How?
