Intro to Test-Driven Rails

We teach Ruby on Rails the way we use it every day at our web agency. By the end of the workshop, you will know how to do Test-Driven Development using Cucumber and RSpec. It is intended for developers with 1 to 2 years of experience in Ruby, Rails, and relational databases.

Is this workshop right for me?

The typical student of this workshop leaves with knowledge of how to best write a Rails application with behavior-driven development, as well as the various tools available in the Ruby and JavaScript communities for writing good tests.

We’ll be using Cucumber and RSpec to cover behavior-driven development, mocking and stubbing, and how to test 3rd-party service interaction, as well as how to use testing to enforce SOLIDprinciples. We’ll also briefly cover Evergreen and Jasmine for writing unit tests for JavaScript.
