6 Interviews With Rails Testing Gurus
Noel Rappin - author of Professional Ruby on Rails, published by Wrox - is the author of Rails Test Prescriptions, a forthcoming book on Rails testing techniques and methodologies. Noel has also written Getting Started With Testing Your Rails Application, a 49 page PDF that deftly walks through how to test a Rails application (or, rather, develop an app using test-first practices) - if you're not hot on testing, it's well worth reading!
As part of the build-up around the forthcoming Rails Test Prescriptions, Noel has interviewed six prominent test-crazy Rails developers:
- Noel Rappin (yes, himself!)
- Geoffrey Grosenbach (Peepcode)
- Gregg Pollack (RailsEnvy)
- Ryan Bates (Railscasts)
- James Golick (Giraffesoft)
- Chad Fowler (RubyCentral)
One of the best ways to be good at something is to imitate those who are already good at something, so check out how these guys operate and, if you like the cut of their jib, steal their ideas for your own personal testing philosophy.
