Spec Tutorial: Elegant Spec-Style Testing That Comes With Ruby

I've recently been code walking through a lot of Ruby libraries for my Ruby Reloaded course and the typical arrangement is Test::Unit, sometimes coupled with Shoulda or Contest for some extra syntactic sweetness. Part of the reason for Test::Unit's enduring popularity is its presence in the Ruby standard library but, also, its general 'lightness' and speed. When you're writing a large app, using a powerful full-featured system like RSpec has significant benefits (particularly stakeholder involvement in writing the specs). But when you're working on a library that might spread far and wide and is aimed solely at developers, the pros of Test::Unit shine through. Enter MiniTest Note: Ruby 1.8 users can run gem install minitest to get MiniTest too but it's not part of the standard library there. What Does MiniTest::Spec Look Like? Nothing too unusual there, I hope. Give It A Try.

This ranking is both because of, and contributes to, Australia’s growing IT leadership. Over 50 software companies are listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. The growth of technology centers created by governmental planners and business networks, such as the Bentley Technology Park in Western Australia (adjacent to Curtin University of Technology), the Digital Harbour at Docklands in Melbourne, and the Macquarie Park in Sydney (including the Research Park and Macquarie University), combined with respected universities and the roll-out of the National Broadband Network, all demonstrate the IT successes of the Aussies!
