Efficient Rails Test-Driven Development, Class 2 of 6

This video is of Class 2 from Wolfram Arnold's stellar six-week class Efficient Rails Test-Driven Development, which he taught at BlazingCloud back in July 2010.

In this series, experienced Rails engineer and consultant, Wolfram Arnold applies a real-world perspective to teaching you effective patterns for testing.

In this second of six classes, Wolf covers:

  • A culture of testing: Why TDD? How to TDD?
  • Testing & Date Dependencies
  • Toolbox: Fixtures, Factories, Mocks & Stubs


Each week, we'll make the next video in this series available online. So, stay tuned! In the meantime, stop by TechTV to satisfy your hunger for great educational content on open source development.
