Talk #3
Where did the factories go? Writing Jasmine specs as a Ruby on Rails developer.

Description:
TDD is a well known and expected practice for developing software. Writing specs in your preferred framework/language is second nature. RSpec is the go to for writing tests for back end Ruby/Rails code and I use it everyday. As I've begun to write more Angular in my daily work, writing specs to go along with my code was slow going at first. Over the past few weeks and months, writing Jasmine specs has become much less of a headache. It has even helped me understand testing at a deeper level and improved my RSpec abilities as well. In this quick lightning talk, I hope to share some of the things I learned as a Ruby developer writing Jasmine tests.
