Testing is hard. Testing a Rails application is even harder. Rails applications tend to blend application logic and framework logic together, making tests load up lots of framework code just to test minor pieces of functionality. The result is that tests run slow, and developers tend to run test less often.
There are many solutions to the application / framework blending problem, but many require a large, up front architectural commitment. If you have an existing application that needs help, then you just out of luck.
In this presentation, we will talk about an incremental approach to application and framework segregation, one that even existing applications can use to good effect.
Meet Jim Weirich
Jim Weirich first learned about computers when his college adviser suggested he take a computer science course: "It will be useful, and you might enjoy it." With those prophetic words, Jim has been developing now for over 25 years, working with everything from crunching rocket launch data on supercomputers to wiring up servos and LEDs on micro-controllers. Currently he loves working in Ruby and Rails as the Chief Scientist at Neo, but you can also find him strumming on his ukulele as time permits.
