Some best practices in the Ruby world are Test Driven Development (TDD), Pair programming, and practicing/honing your skills on Code Katas. We will be bringing all three of those together for this evening. We will do all this using the Ruby testing library Rspec. There will be a brief introduction to Rspec, after which we will pair up and start working on one of the Katas from Coders Dojo. If there is time we will switch pairs and work on another.
If you have time before hand, install Rspec before hand. It should be as simple as
gem install rspec.
Bucketworks usually keeps there doors locked. Buzz up and let them know you are there for the RubyMKE meetup or message @rubymke and someone will let you in. We will be in the meetup space just to the left after you enter.
After the Meeting
We will head down to Transfer Pizza (101 W Mitchell St, at the intersection 1st, Mitchell and Kinnichinnic Ave) after the meetup for refreshments & conversation. Everyone is welcome, and encouraged to join us.
