Chicago Ruby Hack Night - TDD Roman Numerals

  • January 9, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Come on out and hack!

Let's get in some TDD practice with the well-known but always interesting Roman numerals conversion kata.  After you've done your best, check out the video of Corey Haines knocking off the kata in eight minutes.  Yes, he did have to practice to get that fast!

We'll pair up to work on this Ruby  problem. All Rubyists are welcome, including beginners. Bring your laptop with ruby installed.

Enova Financial, our hosts, will provide food and drink.

    Hey, sorry to post something off-topic in an entry for a past meeting, but...I'm a Rails newbie...I put together a very basic index page in Rails. Works fine offline via localhost:3000, but when I put it online, despite setting the default route in routes.rb, instead of the index page, I get a directory display of my public/ directory. What should I look out for? I have the root set to go to home/index, and I have a home controller, and an index.erb.html file the "home" directory of the views folder. Both locally and on the remote hosting site I'm using the exact same versions of Ruby and Rails.

    Had a great time. This is a great kata for learning about TDD (or thinking about it in new ways).

    Went to last month's Hack Night and learned quite a lot! However, I still consider myself an absolute n00b. Hopefully you more competent Ruby programmers won't mind putting up with me. :)

    I decided not to attend as I'm a bit too busy at this time and the email invite didn't say what the topic was. I didn't find out until I RSVP'd No.
