Recently, in the Ruby community, there has been an upsurge of interest in testing. For instance, in the past year alone, we’ve seen the introduction of a bevy of new testing-related gems (i.e. context, cucumber, micronaut, factory_girl, webrat, etc.). These are all good things. And yet do we still see the forest for the trees? While testing improves code quality, facilitates refactoring, and eases debugging, these are not ends unto themselves. This point often seems to be lost as the “testing” drum is beaten ever louder in the Ruby community. This talk will attempt to engage the audience to rethink WHY they write tests and how to avoid some common pitfalls along the way.
