After last month’s Speedy TDD with Rails talk by Ash Moran, this month Tom Crayford will be running a follow-up/alternative session on "More Fasterer Speedy Testing".
Isolation vs Rails: More Fastererer Speedy Testing Mk II Edition
There is a vast set of tools and patches to speed up Rails boot time. What happens if, instead of testing inside Rails, we isolate our specs from Rails? What benefits can be gained from isolating our testing? Whilst test execution time is an obvious benefit, there are more subtle nuances to isolation.
The venue is the GIST Lab. Doors open at 18.45, talk starts at 19.00. We’ll head out for a drink afterwards too.
Ruby is a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on making programming fun. Sheffield Ruby User Group (ShRUG) meets up every month to explore the capabilities of this elegant technology and to share know-how and skills.
New members (ShRUGgers) are always welcome.
You can join the Sheffield Ruby User Group online here. Catch updates on Twitter by following @shrugbot. If you want to say hello before then you can catch us on Twitter or on the Google Group. Or, drop us an email if you’ll need help finding us on Monday. Hope to see you there!
