I’m happy to announce that chapter 11 of my book, Everyday Rails Testing with RSpec, is available for download. This chapter, “Toward test-driven development,” was the final chapter of the book I needed to update for 2017. In it, I take you through step-by-step development of a feature, TDD-style, with commentary on outside-in testing and the red-green-refactor cycle.
If you were waiting for a content-complete version of the book to be available, now’s a great time to check it out. Of course, if you already own a copy, this is a free update. Head over to your Leanpub library to download your copy.
I’m very proud of this version of the book. It took more time than I’d anticipated to do, but it honestly reflects my approach to testing Rails applications in 2017. I hope you find the new content informative. Going forward, I’ve got a few more pieces planned:
I stand with the Black community against systemic racism, police violence and brutality, intolerance, and hate in the United States and worldwide. We must all demand better from our leaders, and ourselves. Stop tolerating intolerance.
While you're here, please consider making a donation to Black Girls CODE, who do great, important work to provide opportunity to underprivileged girls interested in tech, or any organization working toward equity and safety for all, not just the privileged. Thank you.
