Committed what I hope will be the Beta 3 version of the Cucumber chapter. Most of the changes were in the various conclusions. When I originally wrote the chapter, Cucumber was still quite new, and I had kind of a ragged set of thoughts about how it should be used. Since then, I’ve used it more, and more importantly, there’s been a lot more community discussion about how Cucumber is best used, so I needed and was able to tighten up that part a bit.
Meetings, I’ve Got Meetings
If you are in the Chicago area, you might want to check out some group meetings.
Also, the Chicago Ruby meeting on June 1, now has a more detailed description of the schedule.
A couple of links on setup:
This week in RailsDispatch, upgrading from Rails 2 to Rails 3.
Rogelio Samour has posted a set of steps that Hashrocket currently uses to create their standard Ruby setup for Snow Leopard machines. Looks nice.
A few weeks ago I linked to a This American Life story about the NUMMI auto plant that recently closed after a long time being the flagship GM plant for running based on Toyota/Lean principles. Interesting follow up yesterday: the plant will be part of Toyota’s investment in Tesla, and will be used to build Tesla’s cars.
