4 hours


* Code with confidence in the Red/Green/Refactor cycle
* Reduce the cost (and fear) of change
* Create high-value and more maintainable tests that concentrate on behavior rather than state
* Understand the differences between state and behavior-based testing
* Isolate tests through mocking and stubbing for faster test cycles and improved application designs
* Refactor tests to remove dependencies that slow down the testing cycle
* BDD in Rails
* Cucumber with Rails
* Writing Rails View Specs
* Writing Rails Controller Specs
* Writing Rails Model Specs

Who's It For?

This is an intermediate course designed for Rails developers who are ready to begin doing more testing or take their current testing practices to the next level. It's not an introduction to Rails or Ruby. This course is a good fit for you if...

* You have experience working on at least one Rails application
* You are comfortable in Ruby
* You've struggled with testing in Rails including when to start, how to do it "the right way", and how to continue writing tests when the real world interferes

Ruby 1.8.7 or higher, rspec (1.3.0) and rspec-rails-1.3.2, Rails 2.x or 3.0
