The working 'agenda' for my STPCon workshop on Continuous Delivery
So this is what I have got myself into:
An important trend in software development is the idea of continuous delivery and the deployment pipeline. It is possible to have a deployment pipeline that is a series of manual steps, but that is neither efficient to execute or fun to build. Automation plays a large role in addressing both of these problems. This workshop looks at each stage of a typical pipeline and illustrates the role of automation and it’s goals. Appropriate for developers, testers, operations or anyone who wants to speed up their release time, participants will leave with implementable automation ideas and strategies.
The current version of the agenda is:
- Introduction to Continuous Delivery
- Managing the Machines (Puppet)

module Player
describe MovieList, "with optional description" do
it "is pending example, so that you can write ones quickly"
it "is already working example that we want to suspend from failing temporarily" do
pending("working on another feature that temporarily breaks this one")

how to hack in log messages to rspec 2
When doing automation I coach people not to put in logging in their scripts aside from things like 'here is the user name and password I randomly created just now' but I couldn't coax the default documentation formatter in rspec to capture information send via 'puts'. So I over-engineered a solution. Proper documentation and inclusion in my rspec-selenium-pageobjects project in a day or so.
module RSpec
module Core
class Reporter
def with(message)
notify :with, message
