Rubyists love testing. The testing landscape is always evolving and changing. As a rubyist we have the opportunity to lead by example in this space. Corey proposes that as library developers we should be providing environments that give people every excuse to explore and develop through testing. This can be accomplished through fakes.

Corey will cover the approach taken at Engine Yard for library development as well as the other common routes that people take when trying to create or integrate with an existing service. They have found that they have tests that are more clear and less brittle by providing fakes.
