Lessons learned from speeding up a slow test suite, to run 50% faster.  Covering some false assumptions, easy tweaks, a few surprises, and some hacks that can breath new life into that legacy project.

About the Presenter
Jeremy Peterson (@dunderline) is a Software Developer at NCSA Athletic Recruiting. 

After most downtown meetings we head over to Elephant & Castle (185 N. Wabash) for refreshments & fellowship. Join us for a few minutes if you have time.

Please use your real name when you RSVP for downtown ChicagoRuby meetings. Reason: We are required to give a list of all attendees to the security desk prior to the meeting. If the name on your ID doesn't the match the name on the RSVP list, then Aon security will not let you in the building. Sorry for the inconvenience, but those are the rules of the Aon Building.

    This was my first ChicagoRuby Meetup, and I really enjoyed it. I was hesitant, initially, because I'm the beginniest or beginners, but it was a great group. I look forward to the next one!
