After a few missed months KWRuby returns with a regular presenter Eric Roberts (http://www.ericroberts.ca/).

Eric discuss how test factories are incredibly useful for getting data with which to run your tests but might be hidding design benefits from other methods of testing? We'll talk about what kinds of tests are best for design vs. the kinds of tests that are best for ensuring your system functions. Basically, we'll discuss the "Design" part of TDD, and how we can better use tests to design our code, instead of just using them to confirm functionality.

We will be meeting at our regular Boltmade location. See everyone there on the 16th.

(P.S.: I have been having a hard time keep up on organizing presenters. So I would like to try something different, and trying managing possible prentations through the Github issues (https://github.com/kwruby/kwruby.ca/issues) on the kwruby.ca (http://kwruby.ca/) repository (https://github.com/kwruby/kwruby.ca).

I have already added some presentation topics that have been mentioned during meetings, to get started. Please feel free to add topics that you would like to see, or to present. Or Ruby things that you might like to work on with others.)
