Hello everyone,

Mocks and stubs with rspec would be another alternative. I'm just getting my
feet wet with cucumber, rspec and BDD as I write this. I should get a better
handle on this come the next meetup. I definitely look forward to sharing my
experiences with you all then and if people are experienced on this subject,
this would be a good topic to mull over. Thanks!
