Testing For Beginners
Ruby Monday Study Group curriculum for advanced intermediates
This book teaches the basics of testing software.
It has been written after we have run several groups at our Ruby Monstas groups in Berlin over the course of 4 years. These groups start as beginners groups, learning Ruby, then turn into intermediate groups learning the basics of building web applications. They normally then start building their first Rails application as a group, and get in touch with the concept of testing.
After completing this book you’ll have a basic understanding of:
- Why writing tests is a good thing.
- What concepts are relevant for writing tests.
- What libraries exist for making writing tests easy.
- What services can be used to help with your tests and code quality.
