Anyhow… our developer stations run Ubuntu, which meant no TextMate.

May 27, 2010: Random stuff today

I think we’re going to be even more random then usual today.

May 19, 2010: Testing Done Good

Book Status I got some editorial feedback on the Cucumber chapter, the plan is to get that turned in by Friday for a Monday switch to Beta 3. Not sure what Beta 4 will be – it’ll either be Selenium or some of the test quality chapters. Live! I’ll be presenting at Chicago Ruby on June 1, along with Matt Polito. The working title of my talk “Testing Done Good”, and it’s going to be about writing good and robust tests.
