Event description

Description

Does your team struggle with writing automated tests for your Rails application? Do you feel like the time you spend testing isn’t giving you value? Do you want to be able to write tests that help you write better, more robust code and make changes quickly and confidently?

In this hands-on workshop, Noel Rappin, author of Rails 5 Test Prescriptions and host of the Tech Done Right podcast, will guide you in how to write high-value tests for your Rails application using RSpec and Capybara.

Participants should have at least a basic knowledge of Ruby on Rails. In this session, you will learn how to start with tests that simulate user interaction to lead to more focused unit tests. We will help you write more accurate code and lower the long-term cost of adding new features to an application.

The workshop is four hours long and includes:

  • Many hands on coding exercises - bring a laptop capable of running Ruby. We'll send out setup instructions in advance of the workshop.

  • A fresh lunch prepared by the Table XI chef

  • A copy of Rails 5 Test Prescriptions
